XCR13 -Rd 2 -11/05/2013 Road Relay Sandown Racecourse, Sandown

The AV runs are always exciting and full of nervous tension as you see all the clubs preparing and warming up for their races and as you get the privilege of viewing all the excitement and the entire race (if you’re not participating from the grand stand. What a great turnout by the Traralgon Harriers for round 2 Sandown Road Relay’s there were 27 Traralgon Harriers willing to take on the 6.2km fast track, although we didn’t have V8 Motors to power us along we all pushed ourselves to the limit.

The day felt like a mid- summers afternoon, with temperatures reaching around 25 degrees on the day (odd considering it’s the middle of winter), which made for an extremely hot run, not only were we competing with other clubs we also had a head wind to compete with whilst we were running up hill, twice I might add. I think most will agree that the head wind was more than welcome, for cooling down purposes only haha. The 3.1k two lap course was reasonably flat but windy with a steady incline mid- way, which of course meant there was a nice little downhill to guide us back to the finish.
