This is the final run in summertime and next week we are back to 4.30pm start. The rain is still with us, so the track was wet and hazardous, so care needed to be taken.
We welcomed Nick Tugwell to his first run with the group. He proved very sneaky as he sat just behind Emily and surprised her with a crowd cheering sprint to beat her over the last 70-metres. She won’t let this happen again.
Katharina Birks improved by sixty second in the 5-kilometres, which is remarkable given the conditions.
It was good to see Gill Stapleton putting in the finishing touches to her Canberra Marathon preparations to be held on Sunday 10th April. Also, Lauren Evans looks in fine form for her half-marathon in Canberra on the same weekend. That weekend will see a large contingent of local talent participating across all events. We hope to have a form guide in next week’s report
