Our Rule count starts again from #1 And don't forget that other Rule #1 ... always say hello when you pass another Feral.
Well, it was "hold onto your hats" as the wind blew and the dust flew. Some hats were lost on the top of the Hill. It was too windy for Mia who got blown over, but she bounced up again. Archie powered thru the wind to have a two minutes buffer for first, running a minute faster than last year. Reid at 2nd scored exactly the same nett time as Archie. Hamish at 3rd was cruising, 4th to Graeme and an early lead in the comp, 5th and fastest went to David with his 23:21, 6th to Nick in his maiden run, Sharon exactly midfield with 26th place and fastest despite almost lifting off.
Andrew returned from nine months awol and burgled his way to first in the Short - he'll pay for that one! Michael climbed two places for 2nd despite starting a minute and a half later, running slower, but fastest of the day - if anyone understands how these handicaps pan out, let me know! Belinda 3rd. After a career of midfield places, young Chloe rocketed to 4th and has earned a promotion from the zero handicap - good effort. Louise returned from a two year break and snuck into the top ten. Grace fastest at 14th. Bede was a bit sore from his tumble on the painfully rocky Burnt Car, but finished well, and Dad says its good footy training ... I guess a boot is softer than a rock.
Welcome to new runners
Need a Coach? This ex-Feral can help.
Couple of Reminders
Please be early to the start line – you should be entered before 4:20pm.
Did Not Finish? We need to know. All non-finishers / short cutters / other issues - report such issues 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.
