Cold conditions, a fast course and big fields (and traffic jams on the way!) greeted our runners at Flemington this year.
Marcus Tierney ran a great race to never be too far from the leading pack and finished 15th in the time of 30:06. Scott Jackson continued his good form to finish 24th in 30:45 ahead of Graeme Olden (27th in 31:00) and Tom Waters (35th in 31:21). Christian Ashby put in a much improved performance to finish 43rd in the good time of 31:31.
Kynan Dawes finished 58th (32:21) and Ben Bissett decided to take on the challenge of the open race and finished 73th in 32:55.
