Jenkins creates History at Concongella

A feat never seen in the 56 years of SAAC races, 60+-year-old runner Terry Jenkins bags his third race victory for the season from four starts.

Terry’s last win was back in 2018 in the Run for Ray handicap.

Training almost every day of the school holidays leading up to the run, Terry had a positive mindset when he woke on the morning of the 23rd of April, running the 7.3 Concongella course in a time of 38:57.

Invitational runners Bridget Wetherall and David Spackman were fastest male and female runners, but recording times of 31:00.

Event sponsor David Hunter ran an impressive time of 37:03.

In the sub-junior division, debut runner Tanner Freeland recorded the fastest 4:47, taking out first place. Eva Harrison finished second followed by Chloe Hunter for third place.

The next race will be the Stawell Toyota 8km Handicap, on the 30th of April. Please meet at the North Club rooms from 9:30 am for a 10 am start.
