With 2 club runs on last weekend with the Federal Falls Trail run followed by the normal Sunday Club run at Lake Canobolas a number of runners got a double dose of running. At the Trail run a great turn out with 24 starters out to tackle the 3 track variations marked out by run coordinators Iain McLean and Mitch Essex. The course tested the less experienced trail runners while the regular trail hustlers disappeared into the distance. The course was well marked and quite enjoyable.

The fastest runners were:

3.5km – female – Alicia Anlezark and Claire Blair 37:29

Male – Kim Anlezark 27:44, Michael O’Mara 30:55, Anthony Daintith 34:10

6.6km – female – Leanne Corcoran 47:47, Ursula Wilson 1:03:45, Bec Davis 1:03:50

Male – Iain McLean 43:59, Daryl Roweth 1:01:15, John Betts 1:07:00

10.1km – female – Carissa Hickey 1:22:40, Alison Broughton 1:30:03, Luisa Sims 1:31:12

Male – Sam Collins 1:04:58, Mitch Essex 1:09:47, Joel Broadfoot 1:15:11

11.3km – female – Alicia Anlezark 1:05:53, Karen Mudge 1:06:35

At Lake Canobolas Kelly Gleeson 100 runs and Alison Rodgers 25 runs were awarded with medallions to recognise these achievements. 81 starters crossed the start map for the 2.5km per lap course, with the first 3 runners over each distance:

2.5km – female – Abigail Francis 11:16, Lily Bangert 12:45, Charlotte Meiring 13:05

Male – Rikky Bangert 9:21, Jack Daintith 10:40, Mike Cooper 12:16

5km – female – Leanne Corcoran 24:00, Pip Farquharson 27:23, Kelly Gleeson 29:45

Male – Iain McLean 21:51, Andrew McCauley 25:07, Mitch Essex 25:31

7.5km – female – Milla Jurd 40:23, Renai McArdle 1:01:20

Male – Basil Baldwin 49:12, Andrew McArdle 1:01:20

Male – Daryl Roweth 51:07, Anthony Daintith 52:23, Rowan Hopping 54:09.

Lily Bangert was the overall handicap winner after finishing second female over the 1 lap course.


On Wednesday night at Elephant Park, 91 members turned out in much warmer conditions than previous weeks, but that didn’t stop a number of Personal Best times with Peter Finlay leading the way and repeating his performance last Wednesday with a 6s PB and fastest time overall of 10:59. Coming in second fastest was Jake Munckton 11:40 and Anthony Daintith 12:03 was third fastest male. Fastest of the ladies was Leanne Corcoran 11:52 ahead of Isabella Hopping 12:52 who also picked up the overall handicap winner and Ursula Wilson 13:38 was third female.

Other PB’s were ran by: Cassandra Hopping 25s, James Littlejohn 4m30s, Peter Regan 7s and Oscar Meek 12s.
