Macquarie Woods was the venue for the latest trail run last Sunday morning.  19 members (18 runners and 1 bike rider) took on the 2 distances on offer.


In the 6.5k, James Littlejohn (40:57) held off Greg Shapter (44:05) with one of our new members Laurie Montague 3rd in a time of 48:00.  In the ladies, it was Anna Daintith first over the line in 49:08 with Alison Spurway 49:12.  Well done to Rhonda Jones, Anne Maree Ryan and Katie Wright for sharing third place in 52:08.


In the 9.6k event, Anthony Daintith was first home in 45:30, followed by Iain McLean in 45:59.  Michael Macdonald was third in a time of 46:58.  Great to see some new members out on the trail.


Our usual 9am run was at Favell Road (starting at Byng Church) with 52 members running.  Presentations were made to Michael Duncan (25 runs) and Kietta-Raye Shaw (50 runs) prior to the start.  Well done to the members who were brave enough to undertake both the trail and Favell Road.  Brad Simmons was declared the winner.  Place getters this week.
