Run 451 and 452

Run 451

Last week, there were only 4 starters for the run, meaning there were big points available for everyone. Everyone took off at scratch and the handicaps allocated afterwards.

Peter was the first over the line after the handicaps were applied this week, ahead of Jon in second place. Jacinta came in third and Monica was the last over the line.

No Personal Best times were recorded and no-one was within 15 seconds of their PB.

Run 452

The weather was lovely for a run or walk along the banks of the Yarra this morning. We welcomed Stephen to the group for his first 2 km walk (but we are fairly sure it was just to make sure that Nada wasn't tempted to run in her recovery). Thanks to Nada for time-keeping before her walk today.

In the 2 km distance, Paul was first over the line, while Mark, Nada and Stephen walked the distance. In the longer distances, Randall was the first across the line, but once again he was too quick coming in before the 30 minute mark and breaking. That left the win open for Peter in his seconds win for the season (only three weeks in). Jacinta was in second place with Amelia, Adrienne and Monica rounding out today's field.

There was one personal best time recorded this week:
Well run Randall who took 90 seconds off his previous PB for 5 km.

One other runner was within 15 seconds of their PB:
well run Peter who equalled his PB for 3 km.

Next week the run will be on Saturday 26 January at 7:30 am.

New runners and/or walkers are welcome at any time during the season.
