Fifty-seven runners participated in the virtual running of the Injury Clinic12.6 km race.  This race would normally be held with a lap of the Wurdiboluc Reservoir. Josh Forster, who joined the club last season, was a comfortable winner from Liz Harrison and Catherine Allison who were only separated by one second. Allison was the fastest female for the first time with her third placing moving her within one point of the lead in the consistency award. The fastest male time was recorded by Dan Wright. Fifteen runners did the 5 km race where Richard Worth was a convincing winner.

Darriwill Farm Highton ‘Not-the-Grammar-School’ 10 km Virtual Race

Two first timers were among the 84 runners participating in the virtual running of the Darriwill Farm 10 km sealed handicap. This race replaced the usual Grammar School run along the Hovell’s Creek Bike Path. It was committeeman Erik Bumbers who won easily from newcomers Tania de Koning Ward and David Henderson. Bumbers is steadily working back to his best after a horror run with injuries over the last 18 months. Those who ran their race early in the morning later in the week needed protection from the frosty conditions. Hayley Newman remained unbeaten in the female fastest battle whilst Marcus Overman earned his first fastest male honour.

Windows by Geoff Case 10 km Virtual King of the Mountains Race

A total of sixty-five runners tackled the virtual Windows by Geoff Case 10 km sealed handicap.  This race replicated the You Yangs King of the Mountain and around a third of the competitors had a go at the extremely tough actual course. Case was a world champion stair climber so it was fitting that he was the race sponsor. One of the club’s most prolific winners, Vin Gasper, who joined the club in 1973, took out the event from Jeff Walker who joined in the same year. Both have run over 880 club races. Catherine Allison finished third which moved her into second place in the season’s consistency award. Hayley Newman continued her fastest time domination while David Henderson was the fastest male for the first time.

Ten runners, including one newcomer, took the easier option in running the 5 km race, with Ken Walker winning from Annie Morton and Michael Orelli.

The club was saddened at the week end upon hearing of the passing of its esteemed life member, Mike McAvoy who distinguished himself in Australian Masters Athletics for over 25 years.
