Intersport De Grandi ‘Not-the-Belmont Park’ 21.1 km & 5 km Virtual Race
Forty-seven keen runners participated in the virtual running of the Intersport De Grandi half marathon with four intrepid athletes even doing their run in the rain on Saturday. Victory went to life member and Geelong Half Marathon co-ordinator, Kevin McNulty who convincingly won from Mark Humphrey and Kurt Jungling. A distance specialist, McNulty regularly does his long run on Sundays around the Barwon River paths so yesterday’s run was routine for him. Catherine Allison and Paul Posterino were the fastest of their gender.
A consolation virtual 5 km for those who didn’t fancy the long race attracted twenty-seven contestants with last week’s winner, David Simpson triumphing over running partner Jeff Walker and Liam Hanrahan who achieved fastest time.
