In the first ORC Sunday group run at Gosling Creek, with a starting window from 8.30 to 9am to space out runners 37 starters tackled the cold and damp conditions. With a number of distances available from 2.3kms to 11.6kms the runners were naturally socially distancing across the courses. The fastest runners over the various distances were:
2.3km - female - Julie Fitzpatrick 14:16, Justine Tarleton 21:16, Glenys Rosser 22:30.
Male - Trevor Jones 14:15, Tony Fitzpatrick 14:17, Gary Taylor 14:55.
4.6km - female - Claire Gates 29:15, Michelle Whiteley 29:20, Sally Postma 29:26.
Male - Jack Daintith 17:54, Greg Shaptor 29:20, Russell Tym 29:24.
8km - female - Jane Fairgrieve 52:13, Kim Jarvis 52:13, Anna Daintith 58:09.
Male - Warwick Blackwell 39:38, Mike Cooper 44:27, Bill Fairgrieve 48:37.
11.6km - female - Ayako Kusui 1:01:47.
Male - Iain McLean 48:52, Paul Anderson 58:10, Hugh Daintith 58:15.
At Elephant Park on Wednesday night again with a starting window from 4pm - 5pm to space out runners 52 starters took on the coolish conditions to do their laps while Michael's crew monitored the timing system.
There were no PB's recorded but there were still some great times recorded. In a very close top 3 Jack Daintith 10:31, Logan Whiteley 10:37 and Connor Whiteley 10:38 were the fastest and similarly in a tight first 3 females Kinisha Roweth 13:15, Alicia Anlezark 13:17 and Lily Craig 13:27 filled the top placings.
This week has also seen runners rewarded for milestone runs with brothers Jack and Hugh Daintith clocking up 700 club runs, Kinisha Roweth 400 runs and Claire Anlezark 75 runs.
