Race Report

In a hectic week the Harriers confronted the weather gods last Thursday
evening before competing in the Victorian Cross-Country Relay Championships at
Jells Park on Saturday and tackling the Martin Thompson events on the Grand
Ridge Rail Trail on Sunday.
In a great day for the club the Harriers’ women’s team placed second at
the first round of the Athletics Victoria Cross Country season. Against some of
the best runners in the state, the team of Kate Sly, Sarah Lewis, Anna Cardillo
and Liz Kenney all excelled on the demanding 6 km Jells Park course and set an
exciting tone for the year ahead. In other results the men’s teams finished
7th and 10th in a high calibre field with rising talent Miles Verschuur posting an
outstanding time in his state debut for the Harriers.
After leading his relay team on Saturday Buln Buln farmer Peter
Cutler won the Martin Thompson championship next morning, running the 25 km
from Boolarra to Mirboo North and return along the Grand Ridge Rail trail in an
outstanding time.
Karen Graham won the women’s 25 km event, with rising talent Natalie
Comber and the ever-young Des Paynter taking outright victory in the 10 km
Also, on Sunday a handful of Harriers and locals, alongside 2000 other
runners, raced the Puffing Billy steam train along the 13.5 km course from
Belgrave to Gembrook through the Dandenong Ranges. Giuseppe Marino, in a
time of 1:19:24, beat Puffing Billy home by 20 seconds, with Frank Monacella
(1:24:27) a few minutes astern, just ahead of Rebecca Binding (1:25:17)
