TAN RELAYS ON SATURDAY WEEK
The final event of the XCR’16 winter season will be the Tan Relays on Saturday morning, September 17. This is usually the biggest event of the winter season. Please let us know if you are available to run as we hope to enter teams in all age groups.
The men’s events start at 9:00am (except U16, U14), the women’s events (plus men U16, U14) start at 9:05am.
Box Hill needs to supply 3 club helpers to be official timekeepers for the U20 men’s event. Please let us know if you can help.
We also need club timekeepers for all our other teams, so let us know if you can be a timekeeper one of our teams.
BOX HILL WRAPS UP THE TITLE AT BURNLEY
Box Hill runners put in a great performance at the Victorian Half-Marathon championships at Burnley. Although our men’s premier division team narrowly lost the team’s competition, 2nd place was enough to almost ensure a premiership win (we only have to finish a team at the Tan relays to take the title). Incredibly Box Hill men’s teams won division 2 and division 4 and division 6 and the over 50s competition, placing 2nd in division 7.
Our women’s premier division team also did well, finishing 4th.
See Ian Sloane’s extensive report below.
