Runners fall foul of weather
Article by Daryl Roweth
On Sunday due to the steady rain and condition of the running track the Berrilee Road run was cancelled. This is a first during my few years with the club, with many runs being completed in weather where many people would question our sanity. Of course though, runner’s safety has to be paramount in these decisions.
A chilly Wednesday night at Elephant Park saw another 100 plus turn out on the track. Young star, Connor Whiteley (9:53) just outdoing another young gun, Brandon Connolly (9:55) for the fastest 3 laps on the night. Financial guru Russell Tym was the overall winner with a strong 13:39 for the 3 laps. Just wondering which investment / prize will he be choosing. Also a word of warning to Ursula Wilson to watch out for Patrick Hakkinen, who looks to be gunning for you after running a great time which was over a 12 minute improvement on his previous best time.
Wednesday’s Personal Best List: Ella Lamrock 14s, Michelle Lindsay 1m19s, Frances Taylor-Wood 24s, Noah Tracey 2s, Robert Jay 21s, Caitlyn Hobbs 29s, Fred Bangert 40s, Elliot Bangert 20s, Cassie Harvey 18s, Victoria Hamels 8s, Tim Edmonstone 2s, Patrick Hakkinen 12m52s, Andrew McArdle 33s and Carly Wynne 22s.
