Daniel does it again!
Saturday, 26 July 2014 19:43   
Daniel Sexton shook off some stiff opposition today to take out the INTAS Financial Group Scottsdale to Bridport Half Marathon. Daniel previously won this event in 2011 in almost the exact time.... just three seconds slower today in 1:28:14.
Second place was Amy Lamprecht less than a minute behind in a slick 1:26:23, while third was Johnno  Claridge in a very respectable 1:16:40, the second fastest time. Certainly worth a mention for fourth was the ever consistent Austin O'Byrne in 1:20:19. 
Fastest male was Dylan Hill in 1:14:44 while the fastest female was Kate Pedley who smashed her own race record of two years ago by two minutes in running 1:18:32. Congratulations to all finishers and in particular all those competitors who ran the half for the first time. The runners from the local community helped make the event one of our best ever! We look forward to having you return again next year. 
Next weeks run is the Johnno's Running Group 5km at the Trevallyn Dam. It is also the Samantha Hellyer and Alex Walley memorial division 2 & 3 Blue Ribbon races for the juniors. See you all there next week and happy running!
Ashley wins inaugural trail run!
Saturday, 19 July 2014 16:24   

Ashley Brook was successful in the inaugural Michon Int. Youngtown Trail run which started and finished at the Youngtown Memorial Oval in a good quality field of 56. This was a first win for Ashley who has run with the club for several seasons having come a close second in 2012. On an at times  slippery trail, Ashley prevailed over the tough 6km course to win by a narrow 3 seconds from Austin O'Byrne and Dylan Evans who managed third. Austin's second may have the historians scrambling for the record books to see if any other runner in the clubs long history has finished second in three consecutive races and four for the season! No-one can say he's inconsistent. 

Fastest male was Dylan Evans at a run rate of 3:19 per km while fastest female was Amy Lamprecht at a rate of 4:20 per km.

The Div 2 and 3 course was run around the oval perimeter.  Miranda Gregory won Div 3 from Oliver Walker and 1 second behind Oliver was Luke McHugh. Fastest female was Averyl Quinn with a run rate 4.52 per km and Luke McHugh  4.32 km. 

Div 2 winner was also a member of the Gregory family with Charlotte crossing the line first with Eliza Anderson 2nd and Ella Boxhall 3rd and fastest female with a km rate of 4.14. Fastest male was Harry Johnson with 5:17 per km. 

Next week  we travel to Scottsdale for the Half Marathon race to Bridport. Meet at Coplestone Rd for an 11am start and bring an afternoon tea for post race presentations and remember there will not be Div 2 & 3 races.

Flanagan's Flying 10k victory to Anne-Marie
Saturday, 12 July 2014 17:04   
Today Anne-Marie Loader took out the Flanagan's Flying 10k Blue Ribbon Hcp in cool but comfortable running conditions in George Town. Anne-Marie confessed to not being a fan of running at her presentation speech and had got involved so she didn't have to wait in the car while her husband Paul competed. She is now a passionate running convert and fully deserved her win after showing improved performance in previous races. 
Anne-Marie required a last ditch intense effort  to hold out Austin O'Byrne in an exciting final sprint, who ran out of course in attempting to reel her in and fell just 3 seconds short in the end! Two second places in a row for Austin and three for the year is the reward so far for consistent performances this season for Austin.
Third place was Ashley Brooke who has also been in the pointy end of finishes in recent races. Fastest male was young star Chester James-Smith at a rate of 3:29 per km while the fastest female was the consistent Amy Lamprecht in a sub four minute of 3:59 per km.
Because of some major works the Blue Ribbon Div 2 and 3 race courses were slightly longer than usual.  Div 2 winner was Erin Giles, with place getters Eliza Anderson 2nd, and Ella Boxhall 3rd who was also fastest female at 4:10 per km. Fastest male in 3:48 per km  was Alex Davies who dodged pedestrians by leaping bushes in his commitment. A record Div 3 5th win in succession for this race by Jai Davies has set a record that will be hard to beat in any division and topped off with fastest time in a rate of 4:09 per km. Great effort Jai! Luke McHugh was 2nd and Chloe White 3rd. Fastest female was Chloe in a rate of 4:36 per km. Well done to all the Div 2 and Div 3 runners. 
Next weeks race is the Michon Int. 6km Youngtown trail starting at the Yongtown Memorial Oval. A new race for the LRC which means a great opportunity for personal bests for all that compete! The South L'ton Footy Club will host LRC with a BBQ and open bar for refreshments after the race, while the committee will meet briefly afterwards. Happy running....... and we'll see you there.
