It’s not all about the running

It’s not all about the running

The Breakaways is a special place for it’s traditional owners and we are privileged to be able to run in it on 1 June.

Apart from the spectacular sunset last night, the marathon organisers were treated to another special moment; watching Tony Backhouse and his 55 strong choir, the Backroaders, do a little filming and singing at lookout #1.

The choir enjoyed Ian Crombie’s welcome to country and hearing about some of the land formations.

The choir will be performing at the Coober Pedy underground Serbian Orthodox Church tonight. I’m sure there will be a crowd, but it was wonderful to see them at the lookout and watch the sun go down afterwards.
