Palace of the Orient 8500m Handicap

Grant Baensch- Anglesea 8500mAn early taste of Spring greeted the 70 runners who lined up for today’s event, held at Anglesea. Conditions were ideal for running. The course had to be altered due to cliff erosion along the coastal track and the detour pushed out the distance from 8km. This is a run with a lot of surface variety and elevations to test the legs. The winner today was Grant Baensch, who was quite chuffed to claim the sash, having just returned from overseas. He was quick to thank his fellow running group for their support and encouragement.
