Five to Feature in Flack Final

The Bendigo Athletic Club season all comes down to 6.5km at the Huntly Livestock Exchange at 10:30 on Sunday morning, when 22 runners line up for the Flack Advisory Dick Kitt Memorial Final.  The field has qualified for the Final by competing in BAC races during season and these are the athletes who have finished at the top of the Points Table.

Connor Conquers!

Connor Findlay left the best for last, winning the final race of the Bendigo Athletic Club Kid’s Series season at No. 7 Reservoir in Kangaroo Flat on Sunday morning.  Connor ran his fastest time for the year, improving on his previous best by 5 seconds for the 1 kilometre distance.

Connor never looked like losing and crossed the line 4 seconds clear of the consistent Baxter Parker with Baxter’s brother Jack Parker a further 4 seconds back in third place.

No Points, Just a Sash and Some Cash

No 7 Reservoir in Kangaroo Flat is the venue this Sunday for the 13th race of the Bendigo Athletic Club cross-country season, the Rising Sun Hotel 3200 metres Handicap.  This race is different from the others on the Club calendar in that place-getters will receive no points in any of the club awards, nor will they suffer any penalties in the following week’s season ending Flack Advisory Dick Kitt Memorial Final.


Shanahan Fires at Wellsford Rifle Range!

Veteran athlete Kevin Shanahan has produced his best run for a number of seasons to take out race 12 of the Bendigo Athletic Club’s cross country season.  The Carl Barkmeyer Electrics 5km handicap event had proven hard to predict a winner however in the end Shanahan won convincingly and fairly comfortably too holding out another pre race favourite Kane Ellis by 24 seconds.  Rounding out the top three was Rick Ermel who is another veteran athlete enjoying some return to form after being held back with injuries.
