The highlights from round 7 and the race around Lake Wendouree include three open athletes in the top ten, a club record for Nardine Bainbridge and Ryan Geard in the 15km road race, another big win for Cody Shanahan in the U20 6km race and Alan Hammond’s win in the 60+ age group.  Not to mention the many personal best times in conditions not suited to fast running in the back half of the course due to the high winds.

We had very good numbers amongst the open men and women to field 3 men’s teams and 2 women’s team, just missing out on the Div 4.  Our juniors turned out in good numbers also with teams fielded in mens’ U20, U18 and U16 and in the women’s we had an U18 and u16.  Congratulations to our two age group Champions, U20 Cody Shanahan and Alan Hammond…they can be beaten!

For the open men and women it was great to see the events combined again.  Congratulations to the many athletes who ran PBs this round, it’s a great race to get a measure of our progress especially in conditions where the north wind kicked up and made the last 3 km an effort.  Best results of the day were Cody Shanahan’s massive win in the U20s race and fastest of our 10km runners, and Ebony Dodemaide’s win in the U16s.  Thanks to our three AV helpers, me, Colette Taylor and David Dodemaide.  We had good numbers this round, especially in the men’s 10km race with 20 open men, 10 U20s and U18s and in the 3km race there were two teams of 16 girls.
