East Geelong Discount Drug Store 8000m Handicap

East Geelong Discount Drug Store 8000m Handicap winner Daryl Burns

Eighty-seven athletes gathered for the East Geelong Discount Drug Store 8 km handicap run in ideal conditions at Inverleigh on a course designed by the race sponsor, Phil Shay. Although there are some very tough sections, the course was widely acclaimed by all. It was hill specialist Daryl Burns who showed why he has won the King of the Mountains title twice by overtaking a gallant Michael Orelli in the run to the line with consistent placegetter, Mark Humphrey third. It was Burns’ seventh win in only his 80th club race, a rare feat in recent times. In addition, he was fastest overall whilst Susan Howell recorded her first ever fastest female time.
