Gilligan Claims Glory In Huntly 8km!

Well rounded club runner, Brett Gilligan has taken first place honours in this Sundays Bendigo Athletic Club 8km race out at Huntly.

Gilligan said an unsatisfactory race from a few weeks ago where he finished in 19th place has spurred the veteran runner to do better, with Gilligan achieving two 2nd’s and now a 1st since that day. 

Gilligan defeated the field of 27 runners in a time of 32:11 to win the Purtill’s Nursery sponsored event.

Starting off on a handicap of 16:00, Gilligan set off with co-marker Luke Matthews to chase down the 21 runners ahead of him.

Olivia Too Good For The Huntly 1km!

The Junior 1km saw Olivia Gaskin finally take 1st place after finishing runner up in her previous two races.

Wishing to end her brother Jack Gaskin’s bragging rights of having a win over her, Olivia triumphed in beating the field of 10 runners on the Sunday morning.

Second to the line was Jack Parker who also ran fastest time in 4:34 with Jack Gaskin running on into 3rd position.

Race results:

1st - Olivia Gaskin 7.42

2nd - Jack Parker 4.34

3rd - Jack Gaskin 4.56

4th - Kai Norton 4.37

5th - Alirah Norton 7.22
