22/08/2013- Cristopher Court -5km

42 runners braved the blustery conditions for this week’s Traralgon Harriers Thursday run, which kicked off in Christopher Court, travelled around Swallow Grove to Kay Street, weaving through surrounding streets and finally looping back around to finish back at the starting line.

It is often wrongly assumed that the Harriers is just for elite runners, when the truth is, most Harriers members are social runners looking to build fitness, with members coming from across the region to run with the club. In that vein, the club welcomed first time runner Megan Harper, who ran a great time of 29:34 for her first club run, and enjoyed the support and encouragement of group running.

First runner home was Stephen Rea in 17:19 followed by Ian Cornthwaite in 17:43, Robbie Preston in 18:26 and Des Paynter 18:27. Fastest of the ladies was again the consistent Karen Graham in 20:42, with Liz Kenney second in 21:43, followed by youngsters Molly Irvine in 21:55 and Kayla Gallert in 22:25.

15/08/2013- Netball Courts- 5km

Huge numbers turned out for the Harriers Thursday run, which this week was at the Breed Street Netball Court 5k. With the weather improving and daylight still managing to hold out for the start of the run, 66 keen runners set off on the course which included a few small undulations as it weaved its way up to Grammar Drive and back.

The club welcomed 6 new runners to the fold, with Bill Ypelaan, Valentina Bonatti, Nick Carstallic-Prott, Lauren Lancaster, Megan Baker and Lisa Bickley all performing very well on their first outing with the club, seeming keen to build their fitness base and running aptitude. The beauty of the Harriers is that it caters to all levels of running, and the club has an encouraging atmosphere which makes the activity fun and social, with the burden of going it alone alleviated by running in a supportive group.

First three home on handicap were Melissa Hopely 30:24, Kieran Stewart 30:27 who continues to improve every week and newcomer Lisa Bickley.

First runner home was speedster Stephen Rea in 18:31 followed closely by super fit Robbie Preston in 18:52, Des Paynter 18:54 and Brendan Woodman 19:21. Fastest of the ladies was superwoman Karen Graham in 21:45, with the consistent Anna Orr 22:10, Nicole Hauxwell in 23:16 and Bree Morris 23:54 not far behind.

There were four youngsters who joined the run, completing the junior course, with Annie Little (7:31) first home followed by Sophie Little (8:15), Hunter Bailey (10:53) and Jemma Bailey (11:20).

The popularity of running continues to grow, and reflecting this, the Harriers are also currently running the popular ASICS Training Series on Sunday Mornings, in preparation for the Melbourne Marathon Running Festival. With training groups covering distances including the 10k, half and full marathons, there is something for everyone. Training is offered to novice runners and experienced campaigners, starting at 8:30 from the Harriers Clubrooms on the corner of Douglas Parade and Grubb Avenue Traralgon.

25/07/2013- Independent Way- 6km

Last Thursday evening was a lovely clear and fresh eve for a run, with the enticing weather encouraging a good turnout of 50 runners. The course was a 6km track starting at Independent Way (behind St Paul’s) and lapping around the nearby streets. There was one decent hill (on each lap) that ensured the lungs and legs were awake and working. A warm welcome back to Loretta Willaton and David Graham!

Everyone put in a superb run to challenge their own limits. Well done! Alison Whiter (34:30) ran very well to cross the line first for the evening. Second home for the night was David Graham (31:57), making a great come back. Brendan Woodman (22:39) made handy work of the course to be third home.

In the male scratch times, Ian Cornthwaite flew home for the fastest male time of the night (22:05), Brendan Woodman ran well for the next quickest time (22:39) and Robbie Preston demonstrated his consistent good form for the third fastest male time (22:45).

18/07/2013- Rangeview Drive- 5km

The club run last Thursday night was a 3 lap course winding through the streets around Rangeview drive.  It was a great night for a run with perfect temperatures and no rain (justJ it started bucketing very soon after).  It was an impressive turn out with 55 runners participating.  A fantastic sight to see with many runners visible, often only by their white shirts and reflectors, pounding the pavements.   Welcome to new comer Nick Carstairs!

Everyone did a great job!  The flat course gave rise to some excellent performance.  I’m sure there may have been quite a few PB’s in the mix.  First home for the evening was Glenn Graham (24:45).  Nick Carstairs (30:50), first time runner with the club, was the next across the line.  Third was Pete Sanders (30:54).  Well done!

In the scratch standings for the women, Karen Graham (21:07) had a fantastic run and is showing great form.  Molly Irvine, the impressive youngster, had the next quickest time (22:48) and the ever determined Tania Whitehead was the third fastest female for the night (23:04).

In the males, Brett Van Der Velden (18:01) set a blistering pace, with the consistent speedster Ian Cornthwaite (18:10) not far off the pace.  Third fastest male time for the night was the flying Biasi Silvestro (19:23).

Next week the Thursday night club run will be a 6km handicap starting at Independent way (In front of St Paul’s).  There will be two waves 5.50 and 6pm, with the quicker runners in the latter group (handicap above 6 minutes).  All walkers and runners most welcome!

Last Thursday night’s club run started at the Avenue near the Strand.  The chilly clear evening drew 37 keen runners out of their warm abodes to participate in the 6km handicap.  The course was mostly flat, providing a nice opportunity for runners to push themselves and achieve some fast times.  Well done everyone who participated – a great effort by all!  Welcome to Brendan Woodman, who demonstrated impressive form in his first run with the club.

First across the line for the evening was Kayla Gallert (27:21), with Alison Whiter in chase (36:05).  Ryan Fitzclarence was third (27:42).

The three fastest female times for the evening were by Kathryn Preston (24:11), Karen Graham (25:33) and Molly Irvine (26:56).

While the quickest male times of the night belonged to Stephen Rae (21:26), Ian Cornthwaite (22:23) and Robbie Preston (23:14).

This week’s Thursday night club run will start just nearby the clubrooms (crn grubb Ave and Douglas Parade).  The start of the 5km handicap will be at Sterling Street (St Gabriels P.S), with the first group leaving at 5.50pm (6 min or less handicap) and the second group starts at 6pm.  All runners and walkers are most welcome to come along and join in!

 04/07/2013 – Gilmour Giddy – 5km

Another winter’s night of clear skies welcomed an enthusiastic group of 40 runners for Thursday nights Gilmour Giddy 5km run. The three lap circuit of Grubb Avenue and Gilmour Street provided a flat terrain, punctuated by a blustery head wind along the home straight of Douglas Parade past the clubrooms.

The club were pleased to welcome back Glenn Graham, who put in a terrific performance for his first Thursday night run (25:59) finishing 9th fastest on handicap. The top order on the night had some familiar faces with Leigh Albon first (27:30), followed closely by Kayla Gallert (23:59) second, and Ryan Fitzclarence (23:53) with a strong run taking out third. It is great to see how well Kayla has progressed with her running over the past 5 weeks with the Thursday night group.

Some quick times were posted, with the three fastest female runners; Karen Graham (22:18), Molly Irvine (23:12) and Tania Whitehead (23:35). Stephen Ray (17:19) took out first place once again with the males, followed by Ian Cornthwaite (18:14) and Tim Grainger (19:50).

The Harriers are a social running club who are keen to welcome new runners or walkers of all levels to their weekly events.  See our website for details of our events www.traralgonharriers.net.  This Thursdays 6km event starts near the lake in the Avenue which is off Morgan Drive Traralgon, Juniors Race 1 lap.

 27/06/2013- Liddiard Road School 6km

 Although the temperature started to drop, a calm evening, ideal for a winter run greeted the 50 runners for the dual lap of the Liddiard Road School Course.  The 6km started around the border of the primary school and took in the sights of the area including a challenging hill climb in the streets behind. A few runners had an easier run as part of their post Traralgon Marathon recovery, while others continued to strive for their best.

Alison Triggs (35:15) was first on handicap,  Kayla Gallert (29:55) after another strong run was second, and Jen Houghton (35:17) is getting back into form after an injury enforced layoff was third.

Kathryn Preston had another terrific run, taking out fastest female (24:54), with Anna Orr close behind (25:47), and Karen Graham with a consistently strong performance third (26:17).

Once again, fastest over the line was the brightly lit Stephen Ray in a blitzing 21:20, with Ian Cornthwaite hot on his heals for much of the race taking out second (21:48). Robbie Preston put in another strong performance taking out third (23:32).

The club are excited to welcome another new face, Roy Arnold, on the tail of the successful Traralgon Marathon Running Festival. Congratulations to Roy and Catherine Hodgens who both completed their first full runs with the club!

The Traralgon Harriers is a social running club, and strives to welcome all members of the community no matter their ability or aspiration, walkers and runners are welcome to join in the Thursday night run.

20/06/2013- Wirilda Wander 6km

Chilly conditions greeted the Thursday night group for the 6km Wirilda Wander circuit, but runners soon found themselves warming to the conditions along the length of Wirilda Crescent. A short hill section along Cross’s Road broke up the neutral ground of Wirilda before runners opened up on the downhill back along Grubb Avenue towards the clubrooms.

Amongst the 47 keen faces it was terrific to see three newcomers join the group: Amy Membrey, Ian Walls and Catherine Hodgens all put in a terrific effort, we hope they all feel welcome and look forward to seeing them again over the coming weeks.

Fantastic runs by Corrine Metcalf, Kayla Gallert and Mandy Ellis who took out the first three places on handicap and continue to show good form. The fastest female on the night was Kathryn Preston who ran an impressive 24:14, followed by Karen Graham 25:30 and Bree Morris third 27:14. Stephen Ray was the fastest male clocking a blistering 21:16, with Robbie Preston second 23:09 and Kevin Piercy close behind in 23:40, and running in great form with his magic shoes.

Next week’s race will be another 6km run on the reasonably challenging Liddiard Road School course. The club welcomes newcomers of all abilities either walkers or runners who are keen to improve and enjoy their fitness as part of a supportive group over the winter months.

13/06/2013 -Riverslea Boulevard 5km

Unfortunately with the wet weather and so much going on there are no results or reports for last Thursday.

There were a few brave runners but you couldn’t recognise them because they had too much clothing on.

06/06/2013 – The Avenue (The Strand) 6km

In mild conditions, perfect for running, the Traralgon Harriers Club Thursday run was 6 kilometere course which started at The Avenue, and made its way along Lakeset Drive, up Morgan Drive and turned onto Park Lane, finally looping back around to the start via Waterrun Close. The flat course lent itself to some fast times and was an enjoyable run for the speedsters and plodders alike.

Top four fastest men for the night were Ian Cornthwaite (22:11), Darrel Cross (22:28), Biasi Silvestro (23:45) and Kev Piercy (23:58), with the top four women led by Anna Orr (25:57), Liz Kenney (26:23), Karen Graham (26:41) and Tania Whitehead (27:27).

Other runners showing great improvement and commitment to building their fitness base were Leigh Albon, Frank Monacella, Trevor Preston and Chris McGregor, with Diana Van Rhine, Alison Triggs and Tammie Knight holding their own for the ladies.

The Harriers are in the lead up to their major event for the year, the WIN Network Traralgon Marathon, which will be run on Sunday 16th June. Proudly billed as Australia’s oldest marathon, there will be three events on the day, with the marathon (42k), the half marathon (21k) and the Gold 1242 Quarter Marathon (10.5k) open to all runners. For details visit www.traralgonmarathon.org.au.

Next week’s run is the 5k Riverslea Boulevard course, starting at the Harriers clubrooms on the corner of Douglas Parade and Grubb Avenue Traralgon. The Harriers welcome runners of all abilities, are inclusive and encouraging of everyone striving to achieve their own goals.

30/05/2013 – Rangeview Drive 5km

First among the leading three place getters for the Traralgon Harriers’ 5km Rangeview Drive community run last Thursday was Adam Hogan in 21min.29.sec. In line with the trend of the evening this was a significantly faster performance than in recent 5km events; in fact it was 2 minutes quicker than the Gilmour Giddy 5km.

Michael Giddens finished second in the handicap event in 25:05. If Michael’s handicap application has been calculated correctly this means he ran nearly 10min. faster than for the Gilmour Giddy. A remarkable metamorphosis in just a few weeks.

Also impressive and third in the handicap, again by about 2min., was Daniel Watts in 23:2.

It was exciting to see yet another bunch of newcomers involved in Thursday’s run: Kayla Gallert, Sam Findlay, Tracey O’Brien, Tammie Knight and Whitney Johnson.  Kayla Gallert’s time of 25:31 was interesting as it placed her fourth both on handicap and amongst the fastest female finishers. There were 21 female participants in all, so well done Kayla.

Recent junior recruit, Georgina Molinari ran her first full distance Thursday event in a very sound 28:01.

Amongst the gun-runners, quickest outright of the females was Bree Morris in 23:02. At her heels was Molly Irvine in 23:40 and then Karen Graham, 24:24. Molly, in her mid teens, is slicing significant chunks off her race times. Playing a role in Molly’s progress must be her dedication to Athletics Victoria competitions and the disciplining and motivational benefits of racing at this State level.

Stephen Ray, bedecked in flashing red hazard lights, spent one lap of the three lap course surveying the route then sped off into the distance to finish easily fastest male outright in 17:35. This was stirling running considering his North Face Blue Mountains 50km endurance feat of less than two weeks ago where he finished i8th out of a large field of nearly 500.

With little variation from his usual do-or-die effort Ian Cornthwaite ran second fastest in 18:10, pursued hotly by Darren Fletcher, 18:39.

Tenacious Kylie Murray obviously took the cautious route and jogged the course en-route to her recovery from her magnificent achievements at the North Face 50km where she not only won the female category but also finished 8th overall.

The Harriers welcome everyone to this Thursday’s community run at The Avenue (The Strand). Distance is 6km and the event starts from near the lake which is off Morgan Drive, Traralgon.

TRARALGON HARRIERS SUMMER PRESENTATION AWARDS 2012/2013.

Following last Thursday’s run the Harriers held the annual Summer Awards Presentation and dinner party at the clubrooms. Attendance was exellent and boosted the celebratory mood of the occasion. Medals were presented to a host of recipients for categories including the Thursday community run championship series component, the local Summer track 2000m and 5000m championships and the early 2013 cross country and road championships.

The awards emphasize not just single championship talent but also , as in the Summer Thursday Series, dedication, consistency and effort.

23/05/2013 – Independent Way 6km

Congratulation to Leigh Peterson who dominated the Harriers’ 6km community run at Independent Way, Traralgon last Thursday, he finished first on handicap and fourth fastest overall in 23:02.

Second on handicap and possibly most impressive of the first three place getters was Alison Whiter’s 34:52.  A relative newcomer to running with the Harriers, Alison’s times have improved remarkably from just a few weeks back where she maintained an average time of 7min.12sec.per km for a 5km event to last week’s run at a pace of 5:48per km. Alison feels her progress is due to some sound training advice from some of the more experienced Harriers combined with the strength and speed sessions she does at the Newborough synthetic track on Tuesdays under the guidance of coach Ben Bailey.

Joining the Harriers’ Thursday community run for the first time was Laura Issell; whilst notable performances amongst the midfielders were an improving Leigh Albon’s 33:36 and the handicap based tussel between mother and son duo, Diana and Isaac Van Rhine.

Another good performance was by Simon Findlay 32:25, coming from a background of eight years of mountain bike riding, has been running with the Harriers for just a couple of months. He injured himself in a downhill mountain bike race in New Zealand about 12 months ago and has now, at the age of fifty, recovered enough to embark on a running program with the goal of competing in the City to Surf in Sydney.

Outright fastest female this time was Kathryn Preston, 23:25 followed, predictably, by Karen Graham, 25:24 and Tania Whitehead, 27:18.Tania ran with the Harriers as a teenager and now more than 20 years later her tenacity and commitment are still reaping rewards.

Amongst the males Ian Cornthwaite was quickest (21:38), with Simon Findlay (22:35) next and then Darren Fletcher, 22:28.
Darren, a long term football umpire both at elite level and locally, has regained some of his past speed and strength since re-joining the Harriers after a long absence.

This Thursday’s community run is over a 5km course based in Rangeview Drive, Traralgon. Start time is 5:50 for walkers and slower runners or 6:00 pm otherwise; whilst this Sunday (June 2) the 12km and 8 km Championships will be staged at the popular and scenic bush-trail course at the Edward Hunter Reserve in Moe.

16/05/2013 – Liddiard Rd- 6km

Enduring conditions that foretold of encroaching Winter, predictably reduced the field to 35 brave runners at Thursday’s Liddiard road 6km Traralgon Harriers’ community run. In addition to the demotivating effect of cold, wet weather, it’s probable a number of runners stayed away as they were conserving energy for Sunday’s 25km and 10km championships on the Grand Ridge Rail Trail. Those that did participate in Thursday’s 6km run are thus doubly commendable for their stoic dedication.  The route covered two laps encompassing a steady 750m two-stage climb, about 1.5km of flat and 750m downhill. Winners of the handicap component were: 1, Pete Sanders, 28:12; 2. Daniel Watts, 229:15; and 3. Leigh Albon.  Well done guys! New amongst the starters this week was Ryan Fitzclarence who finished in a sound time of 31:06. The three fastest female runners included renown orienteering athlete Kathryn Preston, 25:11; ultra-distance devotee Anna Orr, 26:16 and Karen Graham, 26:46. Brett Van Der Veldon, 21:04,  was easily the fastst male, distantly followed by Ian Cornthwaite, 22:41 and Sam Beveridge, 23:35.  Currently Van Der Veldon’s running prowess appears seamless. He hinted at using 2013 as a conditioning period in the build up to some longer races in 2014, so fingers crossed for injury-free training. Long distance running and walking are part of nature’s blueprint for human beings – structurally we are designed for it.   The Harriers invite those people wanting to rediscover their physical abilities to this Thursday’s 6km handicap community run at Independent Way, Traralgon (near north end of Grubb Ave.) Juniors can choose the 3km course and starting time is 5:50 for walkers and slower runners and 6:00 pm otherwise.

09/05/2013 – Gilmour Giddy- 5km

Last Thursday’s Harriers’ community run was the Gilmour Giddy 5km – so called because of the three lap course; however Adam Hogan, Pete Sanders and Penney Kerr remained stable on their feet and on a handicap basis finished first, second and third respectively.
Hogan,23:33 and Sanders 23:35 (corrected times), both attracting the same handicap of 7 minutes, duelled hotly right to the finish line. Penney Kerr meanwhile , given a handicap of 3 minutes, ran exceptionally to finish in 27:59. (During the Winter program handicaps are applied post the run rather than at the start).

The Harriers club, given their active promotion of running or walking as an antidote to the often sedentary nature of modern life, were very pleased to see a significant increase in newcomers – seven in fact, These included : Simon Findlay, Daniel Watts, Katie Gallip, Becky Pattison, Kieran Stewart, Leigh Peterson and Georgina Molinari. Congratulations!

Well done also to youngsters Hunter Bailey, 16:35 and Jemma Bailey, 16:40  who took out the ‘Kid’s Run’ (one lap only).

Relative to the previous week’s 5km run, and excluding the relevance of comparing different courses, just two people out of a large field ran faster per km times: Spencer McIntosh,23:39 and Corrine Metcalf, 37:48. Well done considering what was obviously a slower course.

The fastest three female runners on a non-handicap basis were: Karen Graham, 21:54; Michelle Sawyer, 26:04 and Anna Orr, 26:25. Karen is a marathoner and athlete of considerable talent, whilst Michelle plans to try her resolve again in June’s Traralgon Marathon and Anna is on the come-back trail.

Amongst the quickest males, veteran Ian Cornthwaite was fastest (18:36), followed by Ironman triathlete Sam Beveridge(19:24) and equally third, Ben Bailey and Biasi Silvestro (19:25).

The Harriers’ conduct their Thursday run as a strongly social event that caters for all abilities and aspirations and aims to involve the public, whether walkers or runners.

This Thursday’s community run is over 6km (juniors may choose a 3km option) and starts from the Liddiard Road School in Traralgon at 5:50 (walkers and slower runners) or 6:00pm. (Please wear high visibility clothing).
