Lighthorse Ultra Run for Millum’s RAF Pilot Grandad

Contributed by Jen Millum Jen raced at the Lighthorse 12hr Ultra on April 28 and won second overall & second female. Shaun Kaesler’s reputation for directing unique, out-of-the-ordinary races was the main drawcard for me entering the Lighthorse 12hr Ultra last month in Perth.

Committee Update

It’s been a busy couple of months for AURA and its membership. World Trail Championship In May, Lou Clifton (12:09:23), Robyn Bruins (12:09:39), Gill Fowler (12:13:49), David Turnbull (12:25:13) and Jessica Schluter (12:36:08) represented Australia at the 2018 World Trail Championships in Penyagolosa, Spain and did our nation proud.

I would encourage all...
