Pro Feet Podiatry ‘Not-the-Balyang’ Sealed 8 km Virtual Race Results
Five first timers were among the 93 runners who participated in the virtual running of the Pro Feet Podiatry 8 km sealed handicap. A number of runners chose to run the actual course with the wind increasing as the week went on. The field was divided into four sections. The Backmarkers division was won by Michael Morton, the Middlemarkers by Carol Crawford with Jeanette Austin taking out the Frontmarkers. The Newcomers section saw Linda Gasparini triumph. Crawford has now set up a buffer in the quest for the overall consistency award. First timer, Marcus Overman was the fastest male whilst Hayley Newman continued her dominance of the female ranks.

Sealed Series Results so far
Each year, four of the GCCC races make up the sealed series (5 km, 8 km, 10 km and 15 km). In non-virtual races, we all start at the same time and the hidden handicaps are applied after the race. Points are allocated in each division (0.5 for the winner, 2 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd…), and the runners with least points over their best 3 races win their division of the series. This week was the second of the four sealed series races.
