Keano (right in blue) set a scorching pace for a good cause.
Beating the banana
Although not usually recommended in public, pacy Dragon Brendan Keane beat the banana while in TST to take out the 3km version of the 5th annual WCRF HK Beat the Banana! Charity Run held recently. Close to 800 runners aged from 8 months to 70 years old shared a morning of great fun and energy for cancer prevention along the beautiful Tsimshatsui waterfront while raising more than HK$420,000 for WCRF HK’s vital cancer prevention work. At the 3km fun run, champion Keano successfully beat the giant running banana in 9 minutes and 18 seconds.
The Dragon’s very own superstar, Justin ‘Diesel’ Barbero will be making his debut live music gig on Saturday 13th March. The lads at V13 have announced they intend to hold a live music promotion night with $13 vodkas and a $1300 tab to be won. Barbs will be playing a one hour set. Get down to hear our guitar hero belting it out. All together now, “You’re the Boff, try and understand it ….”
Michael ‘Farmer’ Robertson was one of the Dragons to take part in the annual Standard Chartered (half) Marathon, completing the 21kms in a credible 1hr 49 mins.
(Any other runner results welcomed).
