It was a great day out at the LARA FUN RUN today. D Jay Geb won the 10.2km trail race in 30.43, amazing Running on gravel! That is 3.00 pace on a course with plenty of stones and some undulations with lots of Emus and Kangaroos spectating. It was a course record by around 4 minutes. Kerrie Gibson was in fine form to reach the podium in the 5km, coming 3rd in 40-49 in 24.42. &Sean Williams MelbournePack won the 50-59 in the 10.2km in 38.43 and is wondering how he will make up 8 minutes to beat DJ.
At Carcoar in country NSW Harry Summers blitzed a classy field in the Carcoar Cup half marathon to run 64.20 on an extremely hilly course. There is over 600m elevation change on this course which can only be described as brutal. Harry beat home a quality field, with Irish International Kevin Batt coming second over 4 minutes behind Harry and national class runner Joshua Torley 3rd.
What a lovely lunch it was in Bangholme today with over 30 Melbourne Packers and friends attending. Thanks for organising Lynda Dickson.
