BURNLEY HALF MARATHON ON SEPTEMBER 4
Round 9 of the XCR’16 season will be the Burnley half marathon (and 6km junior race) to be held on Sunday morning, September 4.
ANGLESEA EKIDEN RELAY RESULTS
The XCR’16 season has been a very successful one for the Club so far, but we had many of our runners unavailable for the Ekiden relay at Anglesea on the weekend. Although not achieving the sorts of results that became routine in the early rounds this season, there were still some good performances over the rough hilly tracks.
Notably our men’s under 20 team of Alex Ritchie, Lucas Pamminger and Carlos Norman won a silver medal, while our men’s premier division team and men’s over 50 team both finished in 4th position, just a few seconds out of the medals.
It was also great to see the return of Daniel Clark and Mitch Dyer to the team and Georgia Griffith running extremely well in her first race of the winter season.
Special thanks to Megan Sloane and to Conor Yung and Zac Hunter who helped with officiating and to Kirsty Ritchie and Bert Pelgrim, who along with Ian Sloane helped with timekeeping.
