24/3/2016 Glenview Park Racecourse 5KM Handicap

The Traralgon Racecourse 5km is an undulating circuit winding through a chunk of Traralgon’s suburbs east of McNairn Road. The terrain incorporates gravel, bitumen streets and roads and concrete footpaths.

First, second and third in the handicap component were Peter Reeves 30 minutes 51 seconds, Michelle Colwell 30:02 and Blair Syme 27:09.

This was Peter Reeves’ and Blair Syme’s first Thursday hit-out with the Harriers in many weeks and in Peter’s case was 30 seconds per kilometer faster than the Railway Reserve race ten weeks ago.

Michelle Colwell produced a massive speed gain since the week before, this time running 1 minute 44 seconds per kilometer faster.

Also amongst the event’s standout improvers this time was Helen Reeves, running 6 minutes faster overall than for the same race twelve weeks ago.

The fastest males and females on net times were: Ian Cornthwaite 18:31, Colby Morley 18:56, Glenn Graham 19:12, Hillary Meyer 20:43, Molly Irvine 20:53 and Kayla Gallert 21:08.

An intermediate race of 3km and a junior race of 1km will also be available.
