Kinisha Roweth reports:

Last Sunday, along with the warm weather comes some danger. We were on snake watch while we ran as some members saw/ trode on a snake on their run at Gosling Creek on Saturday whilst marking out the course.

The leading runners over the distances were:
2.3km – Female – Juliette Kuegler 13:28, Rhonda Jones 15:42, Denise Quinlan 21:48.
Male – Gareth Thomas 13:57, Nicholas Thomas 13:57, Trevor Jones 16:07.
4.6km – Female – Leanne Corcoran 20:42, Hannah Chapman 25:07, Alison Spurway 25:18.
Male – Brad Simmons 21:22, Daryl Roweth 23:27, Oscar Meek 24:46.
9.6km – Female – Ayako Kusui 49:34, Kelly Jurd 58:03, Wendy Chapman 59:41.
Male – Jack Daintith 37:58, Iain McLean 40:37, Warwick Blackwell 45:37

At Elephant Park on Wednesday night, we had 55 members completing 1, 2 or 3 laps on a beautiful warm afternoon.

Coming in top 3 for the males, Jack Daintith 9:47, Peter Finlay 10:44 and Fred Bangert 11:28. Top 3 for the Female runners we had Leanne Corcoran 12:07, Lily Craig 12:36 and Kelly Gleeson 14:02. We had 4 speedy PB’s this week; Alex McLean knocked off a smashing 12 seconds almost cracking 18 minutes, speedy Jack Daintith another 9 seconds off getting 9:47, Frank Salmon-Meek sliced off a whole minute and 24 seconds and Juliette Kuegler took 5 seconds off at 17:05.

It is fantastic to see the consistency and hard work of many members, like Alex McLean paying off and rewarding her with the PB. Proud of everyone getting off the couch and coming to Runners Club and exercising.

Medals are still needing to be collected please see the new awards officer, Rhonda Jones to get yours at your next run.

This Sundays run is at the lovely, not very hilly, Pinnacle with three distances marked out 3, 7 and 10km. Please continue to follow the recommendations of essentially arriving, running and then going home, minimising the social contact. You can start your run between 8:30 and 9am.

Race briefs/announcements/presentations are still cancelled at the moment – this will instead be done via email and on the facebook page.

This is the last reminder to make sure your membership is paid; your results will not be shown until you have. We are still in need of someone to take up the Secretary position, please get in contact with a current member of the committee if you’re interested in helping out.

Continue to check the website, facebook and watch your emails for more information on all club activities and news.
