*Carcoar Cup 2016 - the Day After*

7 November 2016 Andrew Baulch, Festival Director

I feel a bit like Juan Antonio, but this was the “Best Carcoar Cup yet”. The response from runners has been overwhelming, and we are already planning for next year.

I will post some of the comments soon, but if you want some of the feedback, please visit our Carcoar Cup Facebook page.

Thanks to all who took part, and to the media who continue to give us such great coverage and recognition as one of the iconic events on the Australian running calendar, run on “one of the most beautiful courses in Australia if not the world” – a comment from one of our runners this year.

We thank all the volunteers who did such a wonderful job, and we wish the fundraisers – the Rotary Club of Blayney, the Anna Fearnley Club, and the Carcoar Public School P&C all the best in their efforts in the future.

We will welcome you all back in 2017.

The Carcoar Cup 2016 was a wonderful event!
Over 40 students from St Joseph’s participated and had a fantastic morning running, walking, skipping and twirling around the Carcoar Cup course. We even had four students take on the gruelling 6km Carcoar to Creek Dash! This has become a fantastic tradition at our school and we are already looking forward to 2017! Carcoar Cup Running Festival
Apologies if i missed anyone, i tried to get a photo of all our students!
