69 starters braved the strong winds in tonight’s run. All enjoyed the way out. However, they had to pay the price on the way back and only the strong were able to improve their times. The Canberra connection in Sarah, Harry and Greg Leach were welcome starters. Harry tested himself over the 5 kilometres and for one so young he did an excellent time of 28.40.
We welcomed Caroline Booth to her first run and also Archie, the youngest of the Gilligan boys, to his first run. This makes four of the men folk of the Gilligan family, who have run this event.
In the 2 kilometres personal best times were recorded by Jules McCarthy, Alexis and Scott Carver, Harrison Gilligan and Ashlee Beby. The only other PB was recorded by Max Hadley in the 5 kilometres.
Although, there were no 30-run shirts tonight, we have Tess Klower, Anthony Smith and Michelle Connor waiting in the wings for the award and this is expected in the next few weeks.
