Sprint into Spring Series

Eltham Lower Park: This was a popular event on election day. The new sprint map was well received by 120 competitors. Great to welcome Robert Foote to our club team. Robert had another great run, finishing 3rd on Course 2 and was a lucky winner in the random draw prize. Ron Frederick was ably assisted by club members.

Eltham Lower Park provided a less urbanised and more bushland environment than the other maps in the series. The added attractions included the miniature railway, the riverside micro track network, the pony club’s cross country jumps, and a testing hill climb – a whopping 10 contours. From there it was downhill all the way to the finish, through the remnant bushland reserve. All ten club runners completed the course while many other members made sure the event went smoothly by concentrating on event organisation.

It was great to see Sue Healy back and making a steady recovery, with Dave Lotty who made the trip down from NSW for the weekend.
