TRARALGON HARRIERS’ RACE REPORT 30/06/2016

RIVERSLEA BOULEVARD 5KM

Trotting off into the early evening’s cool crispness and enveloping darkness, thirty-five participants tackled last Thursday’s Riverslea Boulevard, Traralgon 5km race. The course was a three lapper through one of the newer estates on quiet streets, and incorporated a gentle first 200m leading into an invigorating rapid descent, then leveling out before a long haul up to the starting point.

Kayla Gallert , in another display of her strong form, won the handicap in a corrected time of 22 minutes 23 seconds.

Second in the handicap was Steve Oates in 22:07 and third was one of the Harrier’s fittest veteran athletes, Jenny Northe in 22:50.

The fastest outright male and female runners of the event were: Ian Cornthwaite, 18:16; Glenn Graham, 19:01; Pete Sanders, 20:31; Karen Graham, 21:23, Kayla Gallert, 22:23 and Jenny Northe, 22:50.

Pete Sanders is running particularly well currently, consistently dipping well under 21 minutes for 5km for the last three Thursday races.

This Thursday’s (7/7/2016) Harrier’s event is the Park Lane/Smith Street 5km beginning from near the Old Service Station just off Park Lane in Traralgon’s east.

Starting times are the usual 5:50pm for slower runners/walkers and 6:00pm for the quickies.

The intermediate race on offer is 3.3km and the junior- 1.2km.
