Turramurra Trotters – a Short History
Back in 1974 a small group of runners came together to train for the City to Surf, just 3 years after it started. From the beginning they kept their running times and started a handicap system.
In the last 45 years the Trotters have run every Saturday morning, firstly starting at 7:00am and now at 6:30am, including on Christmas Day, and even in torrential rain for a brave few.
The Trotters continue to be an egalitarian group that encourages all runners, and still trains for the City to Surf. Also, we have members running in the Six Foot Track and Marathons both here and overseas.
Defying inflation still only costs 20c for a drink after the run!
At this 45th Anniversary weekend away, we are privileged to have Peter Welch, an Original Trotter, and our very own Legend.
