CWD 24th October 2020
A lovely bunch of members running together at the new track around Bloomfield golf course.
Kinisha Roweth reports:
Last Sunday ran smoothly, doing the new course around Bloomfield golf course, with the rain mainly holding off while we got our runs and walks in. It was great to see many members completing the 14km as part of the virtual City2Surf. A massive thank you to Merv’s coffee van for turning up to supply us with post-run beverages. We would like to also thank Brian Penrose: most Sundays he takes his time to complete his distance while he carries his camera and gets amazing action shots of everyone during the event.
The leading runners over the distances were:
3.5km – Female – Claire Gates 21:49, Julie Fitzpatrick 22:19, Juliette Kuegler 23:57.
Male – Mike Cooper 17:24, Georgie Hogg 22:04, Tony Fitzpatrick 22:07.

Top 3 for the female runners we had Leanne Corcoran 11:50, Lily Craig 13:23 and Kinisha Roweth 13:24. Five PBs were made this week, three of them being from the Hill family with Hamish taking off 4 minutes and 39 seconds, Benjamin also taking off a big 3 minutes and 52 seconds, and Madeline knocking off 1 minute and 31 seconds. The other two PBs were made by Charlotte Meiring knocking off 15 seconds getting down to 13:56 and Mark Thomas heading 17 seconds down to 12:53.
We had two members pick up achievement medals this week: Brad Tyack racking up 50 runs and Ayako Kusui getting up 25 runs. Congratulations you two and we are looking forward to see more running memories built up in the future.
