THE Traralgon Harriers weekly run took off from the clubrooms last Thursday night for the “Doughnut-loop” 6km course.
With some Easter goodies being available for members after the run, the thought of scrumptious fresh, hot cross buns and chocolate brought 42 runners out for the night.
This included the welcoming back of Brad King after a long absence from the club, who completed the three-lap course in a time of 33:51, respectively.
It was a close battle between the three fastest runners of the night with Harriers’ legend Ian Cornthwaite taking the victory in a time of 23:17.
Second was young gun Miles Verschuur in 23:57, and third place belonged to Glenn Graham in another speedy time of 23:59.
For the females it was yet again Karen Graham in a time of 27:46, Zoe Kirkman in 31:00 and third place going to Carly Korab in 32:18 to round out the podium.
This week’s run (April 21) is the Meadow Park Drive 6km course, which starts on Meadow Park Drive located just off Grubb Avenue (adjacent to the Harriers’ clubrooms), Traralgon.
New runners/walkers are always welcome, with the annual Traralgon Harriers membership now due, and the Traralgon Marathon also looming with early-bird entries now open, and a discount included for members.
Please note, numbers will be capped for this event, so now is a great opportunity to sign up.
