Genevieve’s Hair and Beauty 7 000 metre Handicap

Rob SollyEighty-four runners faced the starter in the Genevieve’s Hair and Beauty 7 km handicap at Drysdale. Concern for the local ducks meant the revised course involved three laps of true cross country running over varying terrain, a backmarker’s delight. It was Rob Solly who surged to the lead and won by 20 metres from consistent placegetter, Luke Ryan, and backmarker, Ron Thomas.

It was Solly’s second club win, the first being at Portarlington in 2011. Natalie Mensch and Thomas were the fastest female and male respectively by around 50 seconds.

Belmont Stereos Teams Race

20160515_105727Sixty-five contestants turned up for the Belmont Stereo Teams Race along the river where a keen head wind on the outward section was counter balanced by a welcome tail wind in the run to the finish.. A call was put out for someone to run a second leg and it was Dan Wright who volunteered. It proved to be fortuitous because together with Peta Hocking, who was a member of the winning team last year, they scored very comfortably from the team of Robert Peel, Jeanette Morton and Alan Jenkins who in turn were well clear of a group of teams fighting out third place.

1st – Dan Wright, Peta Hocking, Dan Wright.

2nd – Robert Peel, Jeanette Morton, Alan Jenkins.
