CWD 13 Feb 2016 : Sutherland continues to set the pace with another win
Last Sunday the club run was held at the picturesque Pinnacle course with the easy gentle rolling hills with over 90 starters enjoying a beautiful morning for running. Rebecca Halls and young Oscar Halls pumped out an impressive 0.6km, while Josephine Kitto trumped that with a 1km of her own.
Ella Lamrock (15:15) led the charge up and down the hill for the 3km distance, with Molly Dean (16:05) and Isabel Francis (17:38) coming in second and third spot respectively. Abigail Francis (17:44) was just behind her sister and secured the overall win for the day. Fastest of the boys was Sam Wilson (15:28) who finished ahead of Tony Fitzpatrick (16:22) and Kyle Ostini (17:05), with some people doing a little further than the 3km’s.
Michael Sharp (27:48), Anna Daintith (48:35) and Hugh Daintith (48:35) all did a slightly longer 4km course.
Jack Daintith (33:40) was the fastest over the 7km run with Paul Centofanti (33:55) just behind after making a late start and Chris Chester (35:56) came home in third spot. Amber Rich (34:33) was again a winner in the girls race, finishing in front of Kinisha Roweth (37:11), with Caitlyn Broadfoot (42:27) third and Lily Craig just one second behind her.
In the tough 10km journey, Nathan Sutherland (42:02) had a bit of a break on new club member Michael Tierney (45:00) and the very shy Frank Ostini (48:44) snuck into third spot. Estelle Dean (49:30) led the ladies home in the long run with a strong performance to outdo Ursula Wilson (49:45) while Alicia Ross (56:53) picked up third place.
On Wednesday at Elephant Park the warm conditions tested many runners, with Nathan Sutherland (10:49) again setting the fastest time. Liz Simpson (11:29) was the quickest of the ladies after running a very consistent three laps. Michelle Lang (16:46) ran a very impressive 29 second Personal Best to clinch the overall win on the day, while PB’s were also ran by Molly Cameron (6s), Melissa Fogarty (45s) and Bridget Cole (16s).
