There is an old well used saying in the sporting world “When the going gets tough” well this evening the tough certainly got going in terrible conditions with a strong wind, rain, and a track covered with ankle deep water.
There were 13 brave athletes, who recorded times today. The young Carver sisters Alexis and Sophia showed the way and ignored the deep water to perform with distinction in the 3.5 kilometres. Sophia recorded a personal best time and Alexis was just outside her best.
The results are as follows:
Alexis Carver 20.44 Sophia Carver 22.00 David McCann 29.45
Scott Carver 25.19 Dave Connaughton 25.41 Jason Domeny 26.21 Paige Connaughton 26.43 Zoe Whymark 27.31 Andrew McPherson 27.38 Deb Connaughton 28.06 Carla Berry 32.33 Simon Wall 32.56 John Lightfoot 38.11
