Personal bests at Bridge to Brisbane

At the crack of dawn on Sunday the 30th of August, Zeroseven headed off to compete in the annual Bridge to Brisbane race. However, we'd already pulled out the running shoes long before that.

To get us into peak running condition, Chris, our director, organised Friday running sessions. For eight weeks before the event, the team headed out at lunch time to build up their stamina and prepare for the 10km run to come. And even better, for every kilometre run, Zeroseven donated $1 to charity. Everyone recorded their weekly distance run via a snazzy web application (hey, it's what we do best!). By the end, we had exceeded our target goal of $500, reaching an impressive $838. $500 went to the Indigenous Literacy Program and $383 to the RSPCA.

Before we knew it, race day arrived. At the ridiculous hour of 5:30 am, our intrepid team of twelve met in Murrarie for one last pep talk. It wasn't too hard to find each other, since we were sporting new Zeroseven running shirts created by our designer, Emily. From the starting line, the race took us over the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridge, all the way to the finish at the RNA showgrounds.

Following the race, the team enjoyed a hard-earned breakfast at the Buzz in Fortitude Valley. We'd all worked up quite an appetite and appreciated the well-deserved treat.

Our team achieved some impressive times, but what's even more impressive is the fact that every one of our competitors achieved a personal best! Those Friday runs sure paid off. And overall, our team came 30th. Check out the individual results below:
