20/10/2016 Lake Hyland

Last Thursday, the Traralgon Harriers visited Lake Hyland in Churchill for a beautiful 6km run followed by a club dinner at the Churchill Hotel. Runners completed one lap around the lake’s walking track followed by two larger laps around the high school and surrounds. The club dinner was a huge success with many people coming along for a meal and chat with fellow Harriers.

Winning the female handicap for the evening, and off the back of the Melbourne Marathon, was Liz Kenney in 29.38. Second on handicap was Simone Forbes (27.30) and in third place was Belinda Heafield (35.47). For the men’s handicap event, it was Tim Buckley taking out first place (32.52), followed by Simon Hemming and Ian Heafield in times of 33.31 and 36.12 respectively.

The fastest outright time recorded for the men was Steve McLeod, finishing in 24.36. Clinton Jolly was the second fastest male (25.56) and Darrel Cross came in third (26.48). Kathryn Preston took out the fastest outright female (26.37), then in second place was Simone Forbes (27.30) and third place was Molly Irvine (28.01).

On the night we also had 11 people complete a training run of 3.4km and one junior runner complete 1.8km.

This week’s run is ‘Rob’s Rambler’ at Morgan Drive in Traralgon South. The handicap begins at 5.50pm so please arrive ahead of time.
