2017 June 10km handicap results

  • 41 starters
  • 11 bettered handicap
  • 5 course pbs
  • 5 ran their best time in the 2016-17 series (since Sept'16 incl)
  • and now, only 4 members have run all handicaps (9) in this 10k series, and all up 93 have started.


The first to cross the mats this go was Alan Whitmore running his best time on this course, a 1m 57m improvement on his previous best time achieved in October’16. Great run Alan, unfortunately smashing your handicap time big time (by 2m31s) and bettering your recent series of 49s with a 46:59 this go.  Unfortunately far too good, bettering the 2 minute tolerance allowed to go under handicap and ineligible for the trophy.

Next to cross was Ricardo Tognini, having another crack at qualifying in the 10k after several months since his last go, and improving this series times to 63:20.


The next to cross was our Trophy winnerJack Wedgwood, running his personal best of 44:24, improving by 46s on his previous best last August. Congratulations Jack. Super great result. Well done. As you should, you were still giving it your all right to the mat.

Coming in 7 seconds behind, and officially 2nd was Mark Wedgwood (3rd last month), running a 1:27 pb on last month’s time to finish in 47:14. Great effort Mark.

Jack gave his dad Mark a start of 2m45s and caught him in the loop to home, and raced to the finish hard to make sure of bettering dad.

Right now the Wedgwoods hold both handicap trophies, with Lisa winning the 3.5k last month, and Jack the 10k this month.


Coming in 3rd was Steve Pappas running his best time this series (since August’16) of 39:48, and in fact, his best time since his pb (39:31) ran in December’15.

Steve passed Peter Watson in his last strides to the mat, bettering Peter by 1 second. Pete ran his best time since his pb last August.


Not far away was Paul Webb, another with his best time this series, in 41:46, just ahead of Walter Brzica having his second run (and pb of 45:34), from Eamon McCann and his 5sec pb of 46:12, from Lisa Bennett with her pb time of 44:37. To top off our runners under handicap, was Kerrie Persen with her best time, 50:18 in over 6 months.
