This evening, which is week 5 of being back on the track, we had 23 actual runners and 12 virtual runners. We welcomed Ting Liu to her first run with the group. Personal best times were recorded by Ashley Garland and Eliza Milenkovic. It was good to see Angus Murphy back with the group and he promises that son Justin will be back next week. If Justin is on form, he may be able to be strong competition for young gun Tino Lopresti.
A special welcome was given to Miles Craighead, who was an original of the event back on 7 February 2007. His last appearance was 8 years ago. He has now accumulated 27 runs and it is hoped that he will earn his 30-run shirt before he heads back to New Zealand.
Above: the start of this week’s event. Miles Craighead is in the second row in the light blue shirt.
