Reza Has The Pleasure of Winning Race 2

Race 2 was a hard-fought struggle between young gun Reza Azimi and former club champion Rick Ermel with both runners vying for first in the 6.5km event at Mandurang. Rick Ermel looked strong going into the final stretch of the race but it was Azimi that had youth on his side which he used to his advantage and surged ahead of Ermel to win the race in a time of 26:01, 18 seconds clear of Ermel. Azimi, a relatively new member, started running with the Bendigo Athletic Club in 2015 where he won the Rising Sun Hotel feature race.
