Sixty-three starters lined up for the Intersport De Grandi 21.1 km handicap along the river paths. The breeze gradually strengthened in the second half of the race but, at least, the last 2 km were wind assisted as the runners tired. Dan Wright didn’t tire, powering home to score from long distance specialist Vin Gasper with Justin Curran securing his first major placing in third. Wright also claimed fastest time in his first handicap win with the club. Last year, he was awarded the best first year runner. Former club champion, Loretta McGrath on the comeback trail was the fastest female by over 3 minutes.
