A group in excess of 40 runners from Orange made the trip to Carcoar on Sunday, where every race distance was well represented by the ORC members. With numerous outright victories, high placings and age group champions, all involved have done themselves proud. The stand out performances included, Mitch Essex who ran the outrageously hilly 60km ultra marathon in a superb time of 5hrs 34min for sixth male finisher and eighth place overall. Other notable results included Iain McLean who was fifth overall in the marathon and fourth male with a time of 3hrs12min. Jared Sullivan was fourth overall in the half marathon, with a time of 1hr20min. In the shorter distances, Meg Reeves won the 6km race outright in a time of 26m 15s, beating all the males in the process. Brandon Connolly finished around 50 seconds behind Meg to come in second and first male.
