Santos team all warmed up for fun run

SANTOS GLNG's biggest Botanic to Bridge team ever is warmed up and ready to go ahead of Gladstone's leading fun run and healthy living expo on Sunday.

At least 215 keen employees, along with their families and friends, have joined the Santos team and are all set for Sunday's race - a massive increase on last year's group of 126.

Among the runners will be Downstream Operations general manager Brenton Hawtin and his family, who moved to Gladstone just after last year's event and were excited about taking part in their first ever Botanic to Bridge.

Mr Hawtin said he had heard fantastic things about the event, and was looking forward to being a part of the team for this year's race.

"We're proud to support Botanic to Bridge for the fifth time and enter our biggest Santos GLNG team ever," Mr Hawtin said.

"It's a great fit for our business, given our strong focus on health, safety and fitness, and I'm pleased to be joining so many enthusiastic colleagues at the community fundraising event on Sunday.

"Santos GLNG is here for the long-term and our employees are always keen to get involved and support events like this in our great community."
