Rob’s Rambler – 2016

Thursday’s run was the challenging yet scenic ‘Rob’s Rambler’ course, a 6km single circuit track that winds through the logging trails of Traralgon South. The first kilometre is a flat warm-up, the next few kilometres bringing some steep hills and the last kilometre sent runners flying downhill to the finish line. All up, a fantastic workout and the chance to get out of town and run the beautiful hills of Gippsland.

We had 41 runners and walkers of all ages and abilities complete the course. Newcomer Tamara Howitt finished with a time of 49:33, a fantastic first run with the club. We welcome her back for another run next week.

For the summer handicap event, the winner for the men on the night was Nick Finch (23:10), in second place was Riley Evans (22:11) and third place in the handicap event went to Tim Buckley (34:17) who has been very consistent with his placings over the last few months. For the ladies, it was Sue Elsdon winning the handicap with 30:24, followed by Kathryn Preston and Kayla Gallert with times of 28:21 and 30:02 respectively.

The fastest female home was Kathryn Preston, running an impressive time of 28:21. Kayla Gallert was the second fastest female with 30:02. Kayla recently won her age group in the Melbourne Marathon, an outstanding achievement at 19 years of age. Next it was Sue Elsdon, recording the third fastest time for the females in 30:24.

The male event was unbelievably fast, with the quickest outright time recorded by the very talented Riley Evans. Riley completed the 6km course in 22:11, an average of 3min 40sec kilometres. Only a minute behind was Nick Finch with another fast time of 23:10 and the third fastest male was Steve McLeod, 26:11.

Next week’s run will see the Harriers venturing over to Newborough. The run begins in Botanic Drive, please arrive around 5.45pm to have your name marked off.
