Bailey cements himself into 1st place

Concreter John Bailey has taken out the win for race 10 of the Bendigo Athletic Club.

Bailey ran a time of 35:36, in the 8km event held at Woodvale recreation Reserve.

Starting in the middle of the field, Bailey began his pursuit of the four runners ahead of him.

Bailey hardened himself going into the middle stages of the event, catching Mark Perdon, and overtaking Richard and Rhonda Schultz before overtaking Kane Ellis.

Harper-Lee takes out the competition with glee

After running just short of a win in 6 races this season, Harper-Lee Basten has finally claimed victory, taking out race 9 of the juniors in a time of 6:11 to just hold off the fast finishing Parker brothers, Baxter and Jack.

Harper-Lee can add today’s win to her impressive collection of placings this season including three 2nd placings and three 3rd placings.

After witnessing his dad Adam’s fast finishing feat, Baxter went full pelt during the home stretch of the juniors, beating his brother to the line by less than a second.

Nolan Dominates The Competition

Jacob Nolan has taken out the win for race 9 of the Bendigo Athletic Club at Notley’s Reserve.


Nolan started at the back of the pack in the 6.5km Schultz and Stewart Landscaping sponsored run and had some work to do in order to catch the 14 runners ahead of him.


Passing fellow backmarkers ‘Adam Parker’ and ‘Dan Ryan’ through the middle stages of the race, Nolan came upon the final hill of the race where the main group of runners were slowly ascending the 500m climb, being led by Kevin Shanahan and John Bailey.


Jack’s Back For Seconds

Jack Parker has claimed his second win for the season in taking out race 8 of the junior 1km.


Jack ran a great race to finish 1st in a time of 4.43 to beat his brother ‘Baxter Parker’ with Baxter also running a good race to finish in 2nd place.


Following Baxter was Georgia Ryan who ran well to finish 3rd.

Ryan goes Flyin into 1st Place!

Ryan Shelton has taken the win for race 8 of the Bendigo Athletic Club.


It was another close race, this time between Shelton and Lachlan Perdon in the Old Boundary Hotel sponsored 3km at No. 7 Reservoir.


Capitalising on race favourite, Paul Bennett’s absence, Shelton set off at a strong early pace to quickly overtake most of front markers.


However Perdon, who started behind Shelton, was quickly gaining momentum, passing through the main pack of runners and eying off the first place himself.
