Last Thursday’s Traralgon Harriers winter handicap event was the Rangeview Drive 5km run. The relatively flat, 3 lap course looping around St Gabrielle’s Primary School doubled as a perfect recovery run for many runners who participated in the Athletics Victoria Cross Country or Traralgon Marathon events the weekend before. Shout-outs and congratulations to Michelle Sawyer (27:04) and Andrew Legge (29:00) who both ran well, following a 4-day turnaround after representing the Harriers in the WIN Network 42.2km.
Finishing first on handicap for the night was scratch runner Ann Bomers in a time of 33:09. Second place was taken out by consistent youngster Marlon Misfud (20:42) who also impressed the weekend before, finishing 3rd U/18 Male in the Gold 1242 10km Traralgon Marathon event. Molly Irvine (21:08) rounded out the handicap podium, backing up her sensational performance at St Anne’s AV XCR which saw the Traralgon Harriers women’s team take home 1st place division 3 honours.
Glenn Graham (20:20) continued his Thursday night dominance, finishing as outright fastest male while having to hold off brave performances from our Traralgon Harrier youngsters. Miles Verschuur (20:29) finished second and had Glenn in his sights the whole way. It won’t be long until we see the speedy youngster pip him on the line as he continues to improve each week. Marlon Misfud was not far behind in third.
The fastest outright female was Molly Irvine, followed by Karen Graham (22:21) and Liz Kenney (24:20) third. Impressively, these three women along with Kaye Livingstone (26:15) and Georgia Callaway (26:22) were 5 of the 6 fastest runners on the night excluding the top 3 men.
Tonight’s run (Thursday 13th) is the Breed Street AB Park 5km course, with Intermediate 3.2km and Junior 1.2km options. Visit TraralgonHarriers.org.au for additional information and upcoming events.
