Nick marches on to win

Nick Edwards has won Race 9 of the BAC Season today over a distance of 5km held at Mandurang Cricket Ground in cold and windy conditions.

In his 3rd race this season after joining the Army earlier this year, Nick put in another strong run to win by 18 seconds, running an impressive time on the hilly course in 21mins 58 secs.

In second place was Dale Lowe who has had a super consistent season, a win surely not too far away. Third place went to Phil Noden who came home like a steam train and also had the fastest time. Fastest female was Ingrid Douglass.

Kai wins by a whisker!

Kai Norton has won his first race of the 2019 season in a photo finish today in the Kids 1km race held out at Mandurang Cricket Ground.

Kai ran an impressive 4.45mins to narrowly beat Samantha Wilson in a photo finish who also ran the exact same time. In third place was Jack Gaskin who was slightly ahead of Caleb Marron.

Don't forget we have a break next week and then we are back at Crusoe No.7. Today's results are;

Caleb crushes the win!

Caleb Marron has taken out Race 8 of the children's 1km run held this morning out at Woodvale Recreation Reserve.

Thankfully with the weather cleared, a field of 10 children took part. Starting off a handicap of 1 min 10 secs Caleb took the lead with about 400 metres to go and held on to win by a great margin of 20 seconds. Second and third was a great tussle with Jack Gaskin narrowly edging out Dylan Marron for 2nd and 3rd respectively.
