30/10 - Unity Gate to Gate Fun Run

To celebrate the completion of the access road at the Dargues Gold Mine, Unity Mining held a Gate to Gate Fun Run on Sunday morning.

There was a good turnout with about 100 people including lots of kids and families, and even a couple of dogs in the run.

Braidwood Buses shipped everyone up to the front gate – the runners went first and then the walkers.

The Winner and first man across the line was Stuart Doyle (from Canberra) in 9 minutes, 59.7 seconds. The first lady was Louise Sharp (also from Canberra) in 11 minutes, 14.8 seconds.  The first child was Cate Gifford in 12 minutes, 32.4 seconds. The first Dargues Gold Mine employee across the line Joshua Kennedy.

Once they had passed the finish line, people had the option to have a bus tour around the ROM Pad and the Boxcut with Senior Mine Engineer, Joshua Kennedy, and our Project Engineer, James Dornan, as tour guide.

A sausage sizzle on the day raised $108.35 for the local Rural Fire Service.

The RFS from Majors Creek also came along and did the walk, also hoping to recruit a few more members to the RFS.

Lots of Unity staff were involved withTony Davis, Chief Operating Officer – Unity Mining, started the race, Hamish McLeod, Mine Manager, as the official timer and ribbon holder at the end and Unity General Manager Scott Jones presented the prizes.
