Saturday saw the Gilchrist Rosebowl at the lake. An ever popular event we had 32 adults and 7 children racing.
We started with the children’s race first and Andrew volunteered to lead the kids out on the first lap. However, a misunderstanding and some incorrect course marking by Dave and his crew meant Andrew went off in the correct direction, which confused the kids a little as they had listened to Dave’s flawed instructions! It was all sorted out quickly and the race was on…. Boh Ritchie brought home the kid’s in an impressive 5:52.
Luckily Dave’s briefing for the adults run was actually correct, and everyone started without a hitch. As everyone came round past the start/finish line for the first time there wasn’t a lot of time separating groups, however, the second time of climbing the hill to the water tower put some space between people. Hayden Waddell won the adults race in 14:11, Charli Miller coming in second at 14:25 and Mike Harris rounding out the top three in 14:50. A special mention must go to Lily and Vaughan for the sprint finish.
