107 runners attempted the third round of the "Bacchus" competition. Despite receiving an additional 30 seconds to his handicap, it appears that nothing can stop Adam Johnson. He finished first in last weekend's race, followed by Chris Smith. Last week's second-place finisher Brendan Sinclair was further down the field in a respectable fourth. As a result, Adam Johnson now leads the long version of the competition.
Mark Andreazza achieved the fastest time in the long course with Sharon Careri achieving the same in the women's competition. Special mention should also go to Lana Chiappin for attempting the long version for the first time last weekend. It is great to see the juniors of the club progressing to the longer version of the course.
In the short version of the competition, new-comer Ben Bresolin took out first place with Cheryl Wood taking out second place.
In the short course, the lead has changed with Lisa Croce in first place, three points in front of Jai Kenny. Lisa Croce accumulated 23 points as a result of her 8th place in the most recent race.

5 Things Doctors Wish Every Runner Did
by Ashley Lauretta November 8, 2017
- TRY THIS APPROACH TO TRAINING
It’s easy for runners to get too lost in their routine, choosing comfortable mileage and routes when preparing for a race. However, adding variation can help reduce your chance of injury and make you a more well-rounded runner.
“The best way to get out of the gym and strengthen your hips, ankles and core in a more functional way is to find a technical, hilly trail and start trail running weekly,” advises Davis. “Jumping and stepping over big rocks and roots, along with the inherent lateral movement involved in trail running helps runners build stability. It’s difficult to run fast on a technical trail so it helps keep the focus on something besides speed and distance, which is what most road runners cling to during their workouts without regard to strength-building.”
Varying your surface and terrain not only keeps running a bit more exciting, but can help you use those muscles you may be neglecting in order to stay injury-free and prevent any imbalances you may be prone to by just running on one surface.

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 are in before you even 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 when we've had time to finalise results.
