On the first Thursday night run since daylight saving ended, 51 runners completed the brisk 5km run including the welcoming of new runners Chelsea Fox (28:26), Clair Macumber (28:54), Stacey Podmore (28:56), and Hayley Batchelor (28:56).
With the run both starting and finishing near the Traralgon netball courts, the course took the runners along part of the Traralgon Park Run course before heading up the back of Balmoral Way, and around some of the West End housing estate and then back onto Bradman Boulevard before the finish.

Active: Super mum Angeline Diamente returned to the club for a run.

The first three runners on handicap this week were again the ever-so-speedy Ian Cornthwaite (18:30), who was followed by young-gun Miles Verschuur (18:51), and then Glenn Graham who was only one mere second behind in (18:52).
For the females, the fastest three times were Yani Cornthwaite (21:05), who managed to outrun Karen Graham (21:09) by just four seconds, and third place went to returning club-legend Kylie Murray in 21:15.
This week’s run (April 14) is a 5km course which starts from the clubrooms on the corner of Grubb Ave and Douglas Parade, Traralgon.
Registration is from 5.30pm.
