A large number of RATS travelled to Canberra to participate in various races in the Australian Running Festival. The weather over the weekend was glorious and the social aspect was well enjoyed. It is always uplifting to have the support of those who know just how much goes into getting ready for these events.
The running in Canberra is always challenging at a higher altitude. However, there were some sensational RATS results.
