EDITORIAL REPORT FOR CWD Saturday 27th August 2022

By Chris Clough

Was it the beautiful Sunday morning weather, or the lure of morning tea goodies being sold by the Clergate P&C, that brought 50 plus members out for the Clergate Club run?

Unfortunately, from what I hear, I missed a great morning of running / walking and refreshments. The club also made a small donation to the Clergate P&C.

In the running department the fastest in each distance were:

Female – Leanne Corcoran 13:45, Isobel Curran 14:53, Lacey Curran 15:55
Male – Phil Cranney 12:17, Baden Curran 17:40, John Hannan 29:27

Female – Sally Postma 28:31, Samantha Pluymers 30:02, Jessica Curran 30:10
Male – Gary Taylor 28:38, Brian Sharp 28:40, William Robinson 30:56

Female – Amy Robinson 43:56, Sue Klose 45:20, Colette Robinson 47:44
Male – Hugh Daintith 37:14, Mike Cooper 42:06, Russell Tym 45:11

Female – Nicola Blore 49:48, Ayako Kusui 56:06, Luisa Sims 57:08
Male – Tim Robinson 44:19, Luke Hockey 45:26, Iain McLean 48:06

At the Mudgee Running Festival also on Sunday we were well represented in the various events with Chris Pooley, Gareth Thomas 3:59 and Nick Thomas 4:35 completing the marathon with Chris finishing 11th overall in 3:19:56

In the Half Marathon Sam Collins pushed son Freddie in the pram and powered into 3rd place overall in 1:24:15. The Roweth’s, Kim, Kinisha 1:55 and Daryl 1:43 also completed the half, with Kim recording 2:01 and a 7min PB.

In the 10km race Miller Rivett finished in 1st place in 33:08, while Cam Ross 40:33 (8th ) and Maxwell Horne 41:44 (11th overall). Sally Collins 42:16 and Bec Davis 43:47 were 3rd and 4th females respectively. Also completing the 10k were Anne-Marie Ryan 1:06:13, Alicia Anlezark 52:25, Lee Ross 52:26 & Matthew Wilkins 50:10.

In the 5km fun run Ursula and Keagan Wilson 52:39 collected their finishers medals.

On another soggy track on Wednesday at Elephant Park 49 members tackled, what is becoming an all too familiar track and weather condition, to get their walk or run in. The top three men in a carbon copy of last Wednesday were Peter Finlay 10:03, Jack Daintith 10:11 & Luke Hockey 10:59. The top three women were Isobel Curran 12:30, Nicola Blore 13:03 & Kinisha Roweth 13:28

There were a host of Personal bests despite the conditions with Phillip Thomas by 3 seconds, Isobel Curran 19s, Matthew Wilkins 20s, Adam Thomas 18s, Adam Skelton 3s, Janell Hooper 1s & Jemima Abbey 21s.

This week Achievement Medals were awarded to Amy Robinson & Sue Klose with 50 runs each.

This Sunday’s club run has been changed due to the wet conditions to Gosling Creek, with the regular distances of 2.3km, 4.6km, 8km & 11.6km.

As well we will have some members travelling to Dubbo zoo to compete in one of the various distances  at the Dubbo Stampede.
