CWD 28th November 2020
Father and son, Gareth and Nick Thomas at last Sunday's run at Gosling Creek.
Kinisha Roweth reports:
It was great to see so many members riding their bikes out to Gosling Creek, for last Sunday’s club run. 52 members made it to the start line, for a Sunday stroll in the park.
The leading runners over the distances were:
2.3km – Female – Charlotte Meiring 12:44, Emily Meiring 14:03, Julie Hudson 16:25.
Male – Nick Irwin 13:14, Trevor Jones 15:14, Lachlan Irwin 20:31.
4.6km – Female – Leanne Corcoran 21:05, Bridget Cockburn 26:34, Sarah Passey 28:50.
Male – Peter Finlay 18:00, Mike Cooper 22:26, Peter Regan 25:18.
9.6km – Female – Ayako Kusui 49:55, Alicia Anlezark 52:50, Alison Spurway 57:17.
Male – Sam Harma 41:15, Jack Taylor 45:42, Mark Thomas 47:51.
We had 78 members turn up to Elephant Park on Wednesday, completing 1, 2 or 3 laps. Top 3 for the males this week were Chris Pooley 9:49, Rikky Bangert 10:22 and Peter Finlay 10:31. Top 3 for the Female runners we had Leanne Corcoran 11:33, Skye Napier 13:09 and Alicia Anlezark 13:41. On Wednesday, we had a massive 13 members achieve a PB, which is incredible and also calls for a list. PBs were: Kim Roweth knocked off 4 seconds; Skye Napier knocked off 56 seconds; Tim Napier sliced off a massive 5 minutes and 27 seconds; Benjamin Hill taking off 31 seconds; Madeline Hill 57 seconds down to 17:18; Yonneka Hill 5 seconds down; Thomas Carter taking off a big 2 minutes and 9 seconds; Mark Thomas knocking off 28 seconds; Clive Blore 14 seconds off, Nikki Grant another 4 seconds off; Belinda Feeney zipping off 1 second and Eddie Feeney 4 seconds lower. The 13th PB was achieved by newish member Chris Pooley – I must say in his first EP run he took a couple of his laps a little further than the usual, heading down towards the pool. So, this may justify his 5 minute and 32 second PB, getting down to a flying 9:49.
This Sunday’s run is at Lake Canobolas with a 2.5km lap. You can choose to do 1 to 5 laps (so 2.5km, 5km, 7.5km, 10km). Reminder that you must start your run between 8:30 and 9am.
