CWD : 30th June 2018
The tough Berrilee Road was the scene of Sunday’s surprisingly sunny run with a hilly but scenic route through the forest. 55 runners enjoyed the view from the top with Flynn Thornton and Stacey Neville taking out the 4km, Kim Jarvis scoring a nice top place in the 8km (Parkrun doing the trick hey Kimmie?) with Joel Broadfoot and Leanne Corcoran and Sam Collins gaining first placings in the newly created 12 km. Not sure how many times Coop did the course, we lost count. Bonus championship points must go to the the mum contingent who p. ushed the pram up that hill. Nice to see some new faces out on the run including Jess and her puppy pals while Justine Tarleton was declared the winner, great to see your efforts paying off.
Speaking of effort, we left John Betts recovering from a massive attempt to take on Speedy Spurway on the downhill run at the finish. Hope you recovered ok JB.
Congratulations Blake Gleeson (50 runs) and Noah Whitely (400) for achieving milestone runs on Wednesday. 74 runners were at Elephant Park with Peter Hyde declared the winner in an impressive 13.44. First home across the new mats were Leanne Corcoran and Anthony Daintith, which gives me de ja vu as I seem to be writing those names every week. Come on Sophie, Noah and Lily, push those names off the top spots! Well done Blake Gleeson and Rebecca Kennedy for pushing those PBs down and to Supermum Erin Gibson for what I hear was a very tidy 14:58.
Don’t miss out on a great night on 7 July at the Hotel Canobolas. Let Anthony know asap if you are keen to attend.
More fun can be had on 1 September celebrating the Club’s 40th Anniversary. We are getting our glad rags on at Duntryleague so register at registernow – see the Club Facebook page for the details.
Wishing the smart contingent vacating cold Orange for the sunny Gold Coast on the weekend the best of luck. I hear it’s a flat course so am expecting some fast times especially from the over achieving Team Corcoran.
The rest of us will spend our Sunday morning at the exotic and not so flat Bargwanna Road at 9am. Don’t forget our safety guidelines – keep on the right on this road and ensure children stay close at all times as it is used by cars.
