How it Happened on August 11
While half the club was Surfing in the City, John became the 4th double-gold Jogger. 4 x 6000km = 24000km. A lap and a half of Australia. Well done Dom and John and Simon and John.
Twas a delightful sunny gap between a day of rain and evening of rain. Jeremy took full advantage of the C2S depleted field, running a super quick time for 1st. Best part of a minute back, Tony edged out Chris by a length. Fastest were Derek at 8th and Mia at 17th. At the back, Neil, Johanna and Lyn were in overdrive while Ron was still idling.
With one race to go Gary still holds the pointscore lead by 38, making it a virtual impossible snatch for Chris in 2nd.
Harry claimed the Short course honours ahead of Louise and James. Stefan at 6th is just one point off the competition lead and seems set to retain his trophy, although a BIG effort by Harry could upset the order. Ava at 7th set the fastest time of the comp with her 14:34.
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.
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.
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 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.
