A good crowd of runners turned out on Saturday for the Hawks’ Club XC Champs, which took place at Minogue Park. The classic course had to avoid the lake circuit this year but runners assured us it was still thoroughly challenging.
Charli Miller and Mathijs Wetzels were running stride for stride in the 2k race, with Mathijs taking line honours by 4 seconds in the finishing push. (Their speed had Glenn puffing a bit on his ‘warmup’ guidance lap, and he decided to keep an eye on the middle of the pack instead).
Jai Davies Campbell and Harry Ewing led out the SM on the first lap, with Jai pulling away later. Harry was a strong second, followed by Ryan Stacey. Grace Ritchie was first female home in the 5k, and Malesa McNearney took the SW title. MM and MW had some good battles, and were won by John Bowe and Bridget Deverell respectively. Great running everyone.
By the way, Jai Davies Campbell and Terry Hannett are the inaugural winners of the new categories ‘9.3km’ and ‘6.3km’ races, due to both taking a wrong turn.
