CWD 31 Oct 15 : Shining light on Tim
This week saw a huge 122 recorded runners members working their way around the Botanic Gardens 1.6km loop anything from one to five times. With so many runners it made for a natural staggered start while the timing tag system caters for this as your time only starts and finishes when you cross the timing mats. The young boys really shone over the 1 lap distance, with Joshua Gray (6:53) narrowly fastest from Arthur Locke (7:05) in second spot and Logan Whiteley (7:35) third. Fastest of the girls was Amber Rich (7:52) who powered to the finish ahead of Molly Dean (8:38) and Joanne Locke (8:43).
The pace was also on in the 3.2km race with Connor Whiteley (12:41) leading the way and Brandon Connolly (13:24) in hot pursuit. Paul Centofanti (14:15) was not far behind in third place. Setting a steadier pace but leading the way for the ladies over the two lap journey was Tanya Connolly (18:12) in front of Renai ‘Paparazzi’ McArdle (19:09) and Michelle Whiteley (19:31).
Fin Scott (20:25) put in a great run over the 4.8km three lap race to edge out Matt Dean (21:28) and Joel Kitto (22:13), while in the girls Jessie Dean (21:10) was too quick for mum, Estelle (22:32) with Chelsea Gregor (26:07) picking up third spot.
Not as many takers for the four lap 6.4km run with Karen Neal (34:09) having it all to herself as far as the girls were concerned, while Ricky Bangert (29:42) proved just a little too slick for David Craig (30:31) and Steven Wensley (38:09).
Completing the 5 laps or 8km, Meg Reeves (33:26) cut a swathe through the field to finish clear of the talkative two, Leanne Corcoran (39:35) and Ursula Wilson (39:39). Iain McLean (32:41), who is training the house down at the moment and does not know how to do a steady run, as he finished well clear of Daryl Roweth (36:46) and Tim Edmonstone (39:11). Young Hayden Scrimshaw ran the 3.2km distance in a time of (20:58) to secure the overall win on the day.
On Wednesday night at Elephant Park saw another large turn out with 109 runners members taking to the track with a huge number of Personal Bests recorded. Molly Cameron led the way with a time of (19:22) which is a five second PB and which also gave her the overall win for the night. PB’s were also recorded by Ethan Crisp 19s, Daniel McCauley 1s, Andrew McCauley 22s, Bailey Penrose 14s, Abby Dean 8s, Chris Hayward 10s, Naomi Boynton 6s, Stuart Mcgarva 8s, Anna Macpherson 7s, Anthony Wilson 2s, Harry Cummins 2s, Amanda Mackay 18s, Amber Mastrangeli 1m6s and Samuel Murphy 1m28s. Courtesy of his PB inspired overall time of (10:44), Ethan Crisp secured equal fastest time with Jack Daintith. Fastest of the girls was Estelle Dean, who ran a strong (11:39).
