28 July 2014: This year’s Brooks Caltex Sutherland2Surf Fun Run & Walk event held on Sunday 20th July added a new category – the PAYCE Street Team Challenge – and the winning street was Ewos Parade in Cronulla.
Entrants from the one street raced against teams from other streets to become 2014 PAYCE Street Team Challenge champions.
The fastest four competitors in each street combined their times to compare with other teams’ results.
The winning team members were Julius Achon, Luke Barrett, Glenn Stainton and Jarreth Close.
Second place went to Bay Road in Taren Point and third place to President Avenue, which spans a number of shire suburbs.
PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan said a total of 409 teams were in the running for the title of top street team.
“There were total of 41 street teams in 29 suburbs outside the shire, with the majority of streets – 368 – located across the shire,” he said.
“Congratulations to Ewos Parade in Cronulla on being the inaugural winner of the new S2S category.
“The four fastest team members each receive a plaque acknowledging their individual effort in representing their street, or in this case, their parade.”
Anita Pryke, President of Wanda Surf Life Saving Club added her congratulations to the successful Ewos Parade residents.
“This was a new concept introduced into the competition and the club was very pleased to have leading Australian property company, PAYCE come on board as sponsor,” she said.
“PAYCE is a strong supporter of a range of community and charity fundraiser events in the shire and we look forward to a long association with the company in coming years.”
PAYCE Managing Director, Brian Boyd congratulated Wanda Surf Life Saving Club for once again conducting a great community event.
“The event has been going for 43 years and the number of participants who turned out on a pretty cold, windy morning is testimony to its popularity, not only in the shire but right across Sydney,” he said.
“The PAYCE Street Team Challenge this year was our introduction into this important community and sporting event, and we will certainly be back again next year to lend our support,” Brian Boyd said.
