CHOOK HILL 6KM Results

After languishing in the top ten finishers for many weeks, Peter Grixti has finally clinched a win in the Harriers’ Thursday evening handicap race. On this occasion it was last Thursday’s Chook Hill 6km race held in the pine plantations just north of Morwell. Although not a quick runner, Peter, now in his sixties, displays tenacity coupled with the benefits of his determination to stick to his revamped  post Christmas 2015 health and fitness plan. His finishing time was 37 minutes and 55 seconds.

Georgia Pearson took out second place in 37:59 followed by Chris Vallak in a net time of 28:09.

Some of the other results that stand out are: Mark Van Der Muellen’s consistently strong form, 26:32; ex-footballer Rob Semmler’s return to the Harriers in a very competitive 25:19; Darrel Cross’ 25:51 despite a persistent knee injury and Michelle Sawyer’s posting of the fastest outright time amongst the females, 29:42.

Second and third fastest females on net times were: Georgia Calloway 32:22 and Allison Triggs 36:05.

The three fastest males were: Ian Cornthwaite 22:22, Glenn Graham 23:51 and Steve McLeod 24:45.

This Thursday’s (7/4/2016) race is the Rose Rumble 5km handicap beginning from the corner of Rose Avenue and Hickox Street, Traralgon at 5:50 for the early starters.

An intermediate race of 2.5km and a junior race of 1.3km will also be available.

The public is invited to join in.
