Detour at the Lake
Last Sunday 74 members of The Orange Runners Club turned up at Lake Canobolas only to find the expected run was over-run with Dragon Boats.
Quick thinking brought out the alternative challenging hill climb track with the choice of one or two laps.
Results for 3.2km: 1st Female Laura Auberson (15:55), 2nd Female Karen Neal (16:06) and 3rd Female Nicole Williamson (16:55). 1st Male Jack Daintith (15:08),
2nd Male Anthony Daintith (15:18) and 3rd Male Martin Davis (15:55).
Results for the 6.4km: 1st Female Amber Rich (31:47), 2nd Female Estelle Dean (32:44) and 3rd Female Frehiwot Ward (36:31). 1st Male Tom Gleeson (27:21), 2nd Male Brett Rosser (28:25) and 3rd Male Neil Williams (29:19).
The handicap winner was Gai Strike.
Wednesday’s weather was wet and cold, but still 31 die-hard persons turned up for our Elephant Park mid-week run. The winner on handicap was Nick Roweth
The only P.B. reported was Nic Rosser with an impressive 30 seconds (12:34).
In true spirit of The Orange Runners Club an outstanding performance by newcomer 13yr old Danielle Williams, who could have picked a finer day for her first run, blitzed the course in a time of 12:55.
On another note; true to the day all runners were covered from head to toe in mud except Anthony Daintith, who managed to run the 3km course and remain pristine.
Have to check out that running style.
