In surprisingly mild conditions the Harriers navigated their way around the eponymous ‘Gilmour Giddy’ course last Thursday evening, after a safety briefing and course description at the start line. All participants wear high-visibility vests in the dark winter months and are checked off before and after the run, to ensure their safe return.
Newcomer David Hood was first on handicap, ahead of the consistent Susan Poole and Michael Walker, while Molly Irvine (24:53), Kay Frost (26:34) and Liz Kenney (27:36) were again the quickest women. Glenn Graham (23:00), David Hood (23:14) and the perennial Ian Cornthwaite (23:48) ran the fastest times.
In a busy weekend, on Saturday the club will tackle Round 2 of the Athletics Victoria cross country competition on a hilly 8-km course around St Anne’s Winery at Myrniong. The Traralgon Marathon running festival on Sunday will see many Harriers taking part as runners or as volunteers around the course.
