2023 recipient going to Kylie Gorman, of Engadine, NSW
Our 2023 Tailwind Community Spirit Award goes to… Kylie Gorman
Thank you to Tailwind Nutrition Australia for all their support at the event and allowing us to recognise and celebrate that one amazing special person at the race for 2023. This Award is all about being able to recognise someone that has been a part of the event.
Kylie has kindly given up her time to help and support not only the event but also others over the entire weekend. From being there, at 5am helping setup the event and to make the race ready for all the runners, to supporting the aid stations over the next 2 days. Then after giving herself the opportunity to race in the 3 hour event, finished and proceeded to support the 24 hour runners overnight, to then helping with the entire pack down of the event.
Thank you Kylie Gorman from all of us here at Southern Sydney 24 Hour Ultra for your amazing help this weekend, these events aren’t possible without wonderful people like yourself!
2022 recipient going to Dave Garvan, of Woronora Heights, NSW
The 2022 community spirit award goes to a person who is very humble in our community. David, whilst not a runner, but loves to get out and enjoy riding his bike along all the trails in the area, has not only behind the scenes helped with our first setting up of this event last year, but had kindly come back to help us again with the mammoth task of getting everything to the track and set up before all the runners and crew arrive, and also had himself available to help in
anyway prior to the race.
This included collecting the all-important portaloos and setting them up perfectly at the end of the track, then coming straight after work at the end of the race to pick them back up again to take them back.
Not only was Dave at the event first thing in the morning with us to help with setting everything up on the track, he then stayed for as long as was needed to make sure we were all good for the entire weekend.
We at Ultra Running NSW could not have thought of a more fitting recipient for the 2022 award.
Thank you David Garvan.
2021 recipient going to Stuart Wallace, of Engadine NSW
“The 2021 community spirit award goes to a person who is very humble in our community of ultra running. Stuart had not only behind the scenes helped with our first setting up of this event, and also had himself available to help in anyway prior to the race.
Not only was Stuart at the event in the morning to help with setting everything up on the track, but after accepting a late entry to race in the 12 hour event, inspiring others out on the track, he then returned to the track to stay throughout the evening, to the completion of the race, volunteering his time where he could help out, and also with the packing up of the event, post-race.
We at Ultra Running NSW, could not have thought of a more fitting recipient for the 2021 award.
Thank you Stuart Wallace.”
