On a true Autumn day, the SAAC cross country runners met at the Bonnie Dundee track for the Stephen Baird Handicap, with the infamous uphill finish.
Drew Christain claimed victory in a fast time of 23:31 ahead of Claire Davies and Peter Hilbig.
It was Drew’s second SAAC win from 2 seasons of running. He enjoys the fitness, family-friendly club and the well-being benefits of running.
Drew has a bigger goal of completing the Melbourne Marathon later this year in October.
Nathan Baker was the fastest male and Jess Maffescioni was the fastest female.
In the sub-junior division, Hunter Davies ran well to claim the win ahead of Claire Christain and Eva Harrison.
Nash Santuccione was the fastest runner in the sub-juniors.
