On Sunday (4TH November), Achilles traveled to Nagambie and competed in the Four Vines Running Festival. It was a great day, with all competitors finishing their fun run. I would like to thank all the guides for a fantastic job they did - I would like to mention Mel E and Ashton B on their first fun run and Andrew G for his first time guiding. Ashton is the son of Chris and Amy he is only 3 years old and competed in the 2k with his dad and Andrew G (guide). After the fun run, we went to Nagambie rowing hotel and had a great lunch. The day was a great experience. Also, I would like to thank Amanda, Katherine and Amy for organizing this event without them it would not have happened.
