CWD : 17 September 2016
On Sunday 67 club members took on the challenge of a new track at Favell Road. The run started and finished at Byng Church. As well as the picturesque rural scenery the run featured a few little hills and a couple of herds of sheep, with President Renai McArdle proving to be the clubs’ number one shepherd or sheep whisperer. Thanks also to Brian Penrose for controlling the parking.
To the results and in the 3km run Lachlan Ross (14:40) was the quickest, with fellow young guns Logan Whiteley (15:59) and Hugh Corcoran (16:18) battling for the minor placings. Abigail Francis (16:09) was clearly the fastest of the girls, which also secured her the overall win on handicaps. Coming in next behind Abigail, was mum Lauralie (19:31) and Michelle Whiteley (19:34). Some serious pace at the front of the 5km distance saw Iain McLean (22:52) finishing slightly quicker than the charging Jared Sullivan (23:37) with Mark Chapman (26:24). Of the girls, Leanne Corcoran (26:02) was the first home ahead of the very consistent Lily Craig (31:15) and Dani Syme (32:25) coming home in third spot.
In the 8km Alex Irwin (40:22) powered to the fastest time while Russell Tym (49:54) was the only other guy to take on that distance. Kim Jarvis (50:41) led the girls, with Kinisha Roweth (52:32) coming in second ahead of Renai McArdle (59:30). The 11.2km was cut 200 metres short due to water over the crossing, but it was still a very challenging run, for those who tackled it. Nathan Sutherland (47:44) was the fastest as he finished ahead of the improving Paul Centofanti (51:37) and Adam Reeves (52:29). Ursula Wilson (53:23) set the pace for the girls, while Alicia Ross (59:45) and the ever improving Katrina Smith (65:48) filled the placings.
Unfortunately Wednesday saw another wet night which kept numbers down with 26 starters and a mass start. Jack Daintith (11:24) set the fastest time of the night. Amber Rich (12:38) was the fastest of the girls while Richard Eggleston (15:39) secured the overall handicap win, running consistent laps. A big thank you again to Michael Sharp who was there again to do the timing.
