Westies 10k Handicap for January – the closest call!

posted Jan 10, 2016, 12:55 AM by Dianne Karageorgis

The finish of our 10k handicap last week had to be the closest ever. One, two and three finished with only one second between each runner, with 4th and 5th both trailing by only two seconds. 

Our trophy winner was Lisa Bennett, one very happy lady, leading home Alex Bucci and Bruce Driscoll.

Lisa has been competitive from the first time she raced over two years ago. Set-back with injury for a couple of months not long after running her best time, she returned to the handicap event more determined than ever. Her most recent finishes include 2nd in August (by 1 second), 4th in November, and 2nd again last month. 

Lisa ran 43:17. Congratulations Lisa. Great result. Great effort, and truly deserved.
