The SAAC combined with SACCC on a wet and wild Sunday for the third and last combined run of the 2022 season.
Host and sponsor Gary & Rhonda Rice marked out a tough undulating 6.5km course around the vineyard.
Elise Monaghan 34:04 was the fastest female and Andrew Sos was first across the line in 28:13, his first run with the club in 6 years.
After second last week, Col Barnett improved his time to claim victory in 28:44. “Felt pretty good today, certainly the best by a fair bit this year” said Col. It’s been a rollercoaster of form after Covid in summer “felt like I lost a lot of energy” and “I’m happy just running well and feeling good”. Col is aiming to be consistent and competitive for the next 8 races and hopefully crack the 4min/km barrier.
Hunter Davies ran a fast lap of the vineyard to claim victory in the sub-juniors, Tanner Freeland posting the fastest run.
The next event is the Tylers’ Hardware Handicap at Rupanyup, Saturday 23rd July, meet at the Football oval from 9:30 am.
