How it Happened April 19 at the Flexible Solutions Bacchus on the Lake
An excellent roll up of club members to the Bacchus, around 140, that would be on hell of a Hill Run if we got that many together on one week.
Results are now online, go thru the Bacchus website (button below). You can see the list of results and print out your own certificate. Big thanks for this goes to Chris from The Timing Guys.
Another great effort from Coly's Aleara Wallace making it five in a row. She tells me it could be ten in a row if her legs allow. Sharon and Julie traded blows for 2nd and 3rd, split by 8 sec after 10km. Well done Aidan for another win.
Top effort and well deserved win to Reid in the Senior Sprint, and Connor a close 2nd for the Junior Sprint. Abby was too good again, but our juniors Breeana and Isabella were next in line. Top effort Fiona in the Senior women.
Next week Running returns to the Hill next week with race one of the Winter Comp, my favorite, 3km / 6km.
Welcome to new members over the past few weeks
and welcome back to Andres whose job elsewhere didn't work and he returned to us and a new job here.
Annual General Meeting is on May 6 at the Exies Club at (7pm I think). You can witness events, ask questions, nominate to join the committee, volunteer for jobs or sit on your hands. We will be sorry to lose our long time club member and current President Adam who is heading to greener pastures, literally. Also Sandra (ex Treasurer) and Di have called sunset on their long time on the committee, and Richard needs to make work a priority this year and may return later. The club and committee and myself are very thankful for the help of these people over the years, on what I would call out as the best functioning committee we have ever had.
C2S is in August. The bus trip is already being prepared.
A reminder, that zero handicaps are only for the slowest runners and for the walkers, so if you do not fit this description and you are given zero, please enquire with the race director. It is not usually our mistake, just that prior circumstances have dictated a zero which may need to be changed back (see below).
Also on start times, if you have a Short course handicap (say 8min) and you want to walk, note that we prefer if you walk off that handicap (8min) ... you won't finish far behind, and it saves us a lot of time and possible mistakes in adjustments to and fro (see above).
Please be early to the start line – you should be entered before 5:20pm.
Did Not Finish? We need to know. All non-finishers / short cutters / other issues - report to the race organiser.
Note about Results ... we are putting the results online, at the finish line, so your loved one can know what mood you're in before you get home. (Will it be a hot bath or a cold shower? Champagne, or a beer in the dog house?) However ... be aware that these are preliminary results and will almost always change when joggers are added, deleted and edited. You may drop a few places, rise a few places, or even, heaven forbid, get disq'd. So if the fine details matter to you, drop back again later.
