Shanahan Rubs Down the Competition

After finishing the runner up in the last two club races, Masseur/Naturopath Kevin Shanahan has finally claimed victory in race 11 of the Bendigo Athletic Club season.

Sunday’s conditions were wet, windy and cold for the 19 runners that lined up for the 6.5km run at Crusoe reservoir, however this didn’t faze the brave Shanahan, who brushed off the cold to blitz the field.

Shanahan started off in the middle of the field and quickly went to work passing the likes of Mark Perdon and Chook Stewart before passing another stretch of runners being led by Kane Ellis and Tony Sait.

Brother vs Brother

It was a clash of two siblings in the junior 1km today, with Baxter and Jack Parker being the only two juniors brave enough to line up in today’s icy conditions.

Giving his brother a 5 second head start, Baxter went to work in catching his rival brother.

Baxter proved the more determined of the two brothers on the day, racing to victory in a time of 5:01, however Jack put up a good fight to make his brother work for his win.

Relaxed Relays Produce Great Results

This Sunday saw a change in direction for members and guests of the Bendigo Athletic Club.

The usual format of runners competing separately for individual success made way for a more relaxed racing environment with the running of the annual Barry Stevenson Relay event kindly sponsored by Central Test.  The event held at No. 7 Reservoir in Kangaroo Flat, saw family members competing with & even against each other with many friendly rivalries amongst other members and some new faces as well.
