Ellis wins the double

Father and son have won the Sportspower Championship races in a wet and challenging event.

A big thanks to Robyn and Shane Young for sponsoring this week’s event.

Henry Ellis claimed his maiden victory in the sub-juniors ahead of Claire Christian and Alfie Freeland.

Shaun Ellis ran a 50:25s 10km to win the seniors ahead of Drew Christian and Col Barnett.

“I was happy and surprised to have won, a small field helped,” said Shaun. “I have backed off my running the last month due to a few minor injuries, I saw Sue Tyrell who does Emmett therapy and I felt much better after the treatment.”

Shaun has enjoyed success with SAAC this season and is hopeful to get to the remaining 4 races.

“Course was good, a few hills to challenge me and just looking to stay injury free and keep myself fit.”

The club’s next race is at East West Rd-Centre Rd crossing, Saturday 20th August, with registration from 9:30 am.
