Young Gun Rossi Wins Woodvale Thriller!

One of if not the youngest runner, ‘Sebastian Rossi’ has won race 8 of the Bendigo Athletic Club.

Only 11 years old, Rossi on Sunday, took his place amongst the pantheon of race winners to win the 6.5km event in a time of 30:16.

A first-year runner with the club, Rossi ran three 17th placings including a 20th placing in previous season races before taking out the Schultz and Stewart sponsored event.

With a starting handicap of 8:20, Rossi set off with co-marker Charlie Wardrop and started making his move through the field of 28 runners.

Another Good Win By Tabitha!

Tabitha Goode has taken out race 8 of the junior 1km at Woodvale on Sunday.

11 runners contested the 1km event, but Tabitha ultimately proved too good in winning by a comfortable margin of 26 seconds from Jack Gaskin in 2nd place and Olivia Gaskin in 3rd position.

Edward Boase narrowly defeated Kai Norton for fastest runner of the day in a time of 4:35 from Kai’s time of 4:40.


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.
