Results at foot of page.


We had 45 starters again this morning. Humidity was up again, but the temps not as high as last go, so conditions were a little better for running. Notwithstanding, there was again very generous appreciation and comment for the water-station support. Thank you to Lisa Sommers and Brian Bennett for helping Crofty out-back. And thank you to the others who likewise offered their services, but didn’t get a jersey this go, and for whom I have taken rain-checks. You are all great and again display a great sprit within our club.


First to cross the mats was Leonie Montgomery having her first run with us. Leonie and friends ran the Festival runs last July and has wanted to come and have a run with us because she was impressed with our event and friendliness. And we haven’t disappointed, again.

Next to cross was our trophy winner Tony Sinibaldi with a significant pb. This was Tony’s 8th run on this course and pb’d by 1m43s to yield his best time of 51:23. Congratulations Tony.


Third to come home was Patrick Wong running his third qualifier and with his best time of 53:39. Well done Patrick. You have improved with each outing. Patrick headed home a pack of fast and close finishers: with next, officially 2ndWayne Layt running a 14s pb of 53:26, from 3rd Lisa Bennett with a 13s pb in 45:01, then Peter Brouwer in 47:21 with his best time since Feb’16, then Daniel Illingworth with this course 1:15pb in 42:26. Good to see you running so well.


It was great to see Doug Fulford back in the handicap after a hiatus (apart from one cameo) since July 2012.


Fastest males today:

Steve Pappas - 40:45

Lorri Dilucchio - 41:08

Paul Webb - 42:31

All faster than last month.

Thank you to all for participating.


The random draw prize went to Daniel Illingworth, and the lucky ticket to Ann Owen, opting for wine and chocolates respectively.


I have attached 3 reports

·        the Across the Line results,

·        the Chip Times for our runners in the 5 runs in 2016-17 plus their history on this course, and

·        the Handicap Progressive Pointscore.


A note on the pointscore:  We are 5 runs into the new series of 12, with the top 9 scores to contribute to the aggregate. At this time no point-score runs have been deducted to ascertain a true competition leader. The tables currently reflect the points scored in each of the five handicaps and a total. After run 6, a proper point-score table, inclusive of the deduction of the 3 lowest score results will be provided.


We have had 82 have at least 1 run in the competition so far his year. 12 participants have started all 5 runs. The top 3 at this time are separated by only 3 points.

It is still very early days.



Like always, thank you to everyone who helped out with the setting up and cleanup after the handicap. Your assistance is so greatly appreciated, and our handicaps only happen because so many pitch in.

Apologies for the absence of the clock this morning. When we fired it up, we found that it was “out of order” and we are working on this for next week’s 3.5k handicap.


Heard on the radio: “You need to dance before the music stops” ... aka ... do it while you have the opportunity!
