TRARALGON HARRIERS’ ATHLETICS REPORT FOR THURSDAY MARCH 28TH
NNM BOTANICAL GARDENS 5KM HANDICAP
The Newborough Botanical Gardens 5km handicap last Thursday was dominated by an all female trio – Helen Whitby, Michelle Colwell and Alison Whiter.
Whilst first and second placed Helen and Michelle have been participating regularly, producing fairly consistent times, varying a little from week to week mostly due to course terrain, third placed Alison Whiter, however, has had long absences from Thursday handicap competition and so is on the come-back trail towards her results of previous years.
Amongst the rest of the field of runners, Tom Irvine produced a noticeably strong result, running a handicap time of 29:32 off a nine minute handicap and therefore earning a corrected time of 20:32 – more than 2 minutes faster than last time he ran this course.
Amongst the junior participants in the 5km event, Arlia Whitehead and Miles Verschuur are continuing to run impressively.
The outright fastest trio of both sexes were: Kaye Frost 22:43, Liz Kenney 24:59, Arlia Whitehead 25:07, Glenn Graham 19:29, Darrel Cross 20:29 and Tom Irvine 20:32.
This Thursday’s (4/4/19) handicap event is the Rose Rumble 5km from the intersection of Hickox Street and Rose Avenue, Traralgon at 6pm. The intermediate and junior events on offer are 2.5km and 1.3km respectively.
