TRARALGON HARRIERS RACE REPORT 22/10/2015
RAIL TRAIL 5KM
The Harrier’s new Rail Trail 5km course was a resounding success, attracting a large field of participants last Thursday.
The handicap component of the race was won by the talented junior athlete, Jack Murray in 21 minutes 33 seconds.
Second and third place-getters were Sarah Hill, 30:52 and Lee Graham, 24:26.
New to the Harriers this week was Cynthia Langan, 26:38. Cynthia also managed to finish fifth out of a field of 51 runners, a stirling inaugural result.
A stand-out result amongst a competitive field was Peter Evans’ fourth handicap placing in 17:35. This is a resounding performance, faster than any Traralgon Harrier at a Thursday event for a long while and suggests shades of Peter’s form of several years ago when he was one of the club’s dominant runners.
The fastest outright male and female runners were Peter Evans, 17:35, Riley Evans, 18:08, Tyler Morley, 18:42, Molly Irvine, 20:40, Georgia Pearson, 22:52 and Sue Elsdon, 23:03.
This Thursday’s (29/10/2015) race is the Clarkes Road 6km, beginning near a reservoir on a dirt track to the right about 500m up Clarkes road from the intersection with Sanders Road and Mattingly Hill Road. Starting time is 6pm.
Newcomers are encouraged to join in.
