Father Goes Best

After son Josh and daughter Gab won early races in the Bendigo Athletic Club cross-country season the pressure was on their father Tony Sait in Race 4 over 8k at the Woodvale Recreation Reserve on Sunday.  Displaying nerves of steel Tony just lasted to grab the win by 4 seconds from fast-finishing Luke Matthews with the ever-reliable Aaron Norton third. 

In the 3k event Kylie Stevenson ran 19:20 to win from Cherie Gastin (19:56) with third place going to Justine Graham (20:24).

Tabitha Wins at Woodvale!

Race 4 of the kids 1km run was held at Woodvale Recreation Reserve. 13 runners braved the ever worsening weather to tackle the bush track.

Matching her sister's win in Race 1, Tabitha Goode ran strongly from the front to hold off some fast finishers to grab the win!

In second place was Olivia Gaskin who put in her best run this season. Third place went to Dylan Marron who also ran really strongly. Well done to everyone, you all put in a brilliant effort.

Kerry Scorches the Whipstick

Race 3 was held at Notley's Reserve in the Whipstick Forest where great conditions saw a field of 22 take on the challenging hilly course. Popular runner Kerry Ellis ran an impressive time to win by 11 seconds. 2nd place went to Aaron Norton whilst 3rd went to Race 2 winner Gab Sait.

14th place went to Kerry's husband Kane, so it's fairly obvious who has bragging rights in the Ellis household this week!

Fastest time went to Josh Sait whilst fastest female went to Ingrid Douglass.
