Intersport De Grandi half marathon cancelled

Unfortunately, the easing of COVID restrictions from midnight tonight only allows training. Therefore we have to cancel Sunday’s Intersport De Grandi half marathon. 

With the new restrictions expected to last till the end of the month, it is extremely unlikely that the Four Bridges and the Eliminator will be held.

The Running Company Geelong 15 000 metre Sealed Handicap

Perfect conditions prevailed on Sunday as the 83 contestants set off in the Running Company Geelong 15 km sealed handicap around the river loop. By the time the runners began their third and final lap, the wind had picked up. A group of four were still in contention with a kilometre to go when Pat Hagan applied enough pressure to split the bunch to go on to win by 50 metres from Hamish Wishart with invitation runner Bevan Nicholson a further 35 metres astern. There was no doubt in the female section with Jane White over a kilometre ahead of her nearest rivals. 

When handicappers Dan, Jo and Michael applied the hidden handicaps, Barney Ellis won his third race for the season in the Middlemarkers. The other three divisions went to members who recorded their first club win, namely Louise Brennan, Kim McFadden and Luke Considine.

Another 25 runners contested a consolation 5 km one lap event with Hannah Peart the winner. Life member Tony McRae was recognised for reaching his 300 run milestone.
