Conditions were perfect for 52 competitors in the Fit For Living 12 600 metre handicap around the Wurdiboluc Reservoir. For the first time in the club’s 47 year history, a handicap race resulted in a dead heat. Even the camera could not separate Jo Foran and John Morton who joined forces at the half way mark and powered to the finish in a see-saw battle. A lunge by Foran on the line meant the honours were shared, 120 metres ahead of Vin Gasper. It was Morton’s first win whilst Foran, who is training for the Gold Coast Running Festival, had won three races previously. Natalie Mensch and Ron Thomas were again convincing fastest female and male respectively.
