Café Zoo 7000m Handicap

20170611_103432A smaller field of 73 gathered for the Café Zoo 7 km handicap at Drysdale. The recent drier weather meant there were only a few damp spots to negotiate. It was predicted to be a course for the backmarkers and it was reigning two-time club champion, Ron Thomas, who motored through the field to score by 60 metres from Colin Hatton, who showed a welcome return to form, and Luke Haines a farther 40 metres back. Tracie Dekleva  was the fastest female by nearly 6 minutes and new member, Kurt McDonald, was the fastest male by half a minute.

Peter McDonough was recognised for reaching the 100 run milestone
