Water Tower 5km Handicap.

With the Douglas Parade clubrooms as the base, last Thursday’s Traralgon Harriers 5km handicap run traversed the housing estates north of Crosses Road before retracing the first km.

Winner of the main event in 24 min. 46 sec. was veteran athlete Michael Walker who has regained much of his old form during the last few months after a lengthy respite, whilst second and third places were clinched by the previous Thursday’s placegetters, Georgia Callaway and Phil Mayer.

A standout participant further back in the field and running amazingly for an octagenarian was Barry Higgins, 31:28. His poise and balance point to the far-reaching benefits of a continuing active lifestyle.

The fastest runners included Karen Graham 21:16, Kay Frost 21:52 and Liz Kenney 24:12 amongst the females, and Glenn Graham 18:34, Darrel Cross 19:04 and Ian Cornthwaite 19:25 for the males. Darrel Cross, despite numerous recent medical setbacks, is running particularly strongly and looks like having a very satisfying winter Athletics Victoria season.

This Thursday’s (21/3/19) handicap event is the Chook Hill 6km amongst the pine plantation off Old Melbourne Road and just up from the Water Factory north of Morwell.

Alternative distances offered will be 3km and 1km for juniors. Starting time is still 6pm but allow time for registration and warm-up.
