Sunday 29 March 2009, King Lloyd Reserve, Highton, Geelong
The Barwon River trail is a beautiful place to run. The trail follows the slow meandering Barwon River as it journeys toward the ocean and provides a green canopy of trees shade all from the sun. Added to this were moderate temperatures, light cloud cover and no wind all providing the perfect ingredients for a perfect race. We could not have wished for better.
Congratulations to the 250 who ran, jogged and joined the merriment, the largest crowd we have had to a Sri Chinmoy Race in Geelong.
Well done to our 18km race winners Julian Spence ( 1:03.56) and Jennifer Kelly (1:22:29) who each convicingly took line honours. Julian's efforts were made even more impressive by the fact that he passed the whole 12km field enroute to his emphatic victory. Speciical mention also to Doc's Running club with over 15 representatives and to their fearless leader Doc O'Connor to won the 5km in an impressive 21.11.
