LAST Thursday night’s run saw 50 runners and walkers complete a mildly warm 5km three-lap course.
The course took runners along Park Lane, up and around Morgan Drive and back down Strathcole Drive, Traralgon.
The run also included the welcoming of two new runners to the club including Dempsey Podmore (21.58) and Amanda Reid (26.05), as well as the welcoming of returning member Michael Tripodi (22.03).
The first three runners for the males this week was again the ever-dominating Miles Verschuur 19.47, followed by Glenn Graham by a mere one second in 19.48, and Marlon Mifsud finishing third in a time of 20.57.
Fastest females for the night were club great Karen Graham (22.44), second across the line belonged to new runner Amanda Reid, and third went to another club great in Kate Mayer who completed the course in 26.15.
This week’s run (May 5) is the Gilmour Giddy 5km course which starts from the clubrooms on the corner of Grubb Avenue and Douglas Parade, Traralgon.
New runners/walkers are always welcome, with the annual Traralgon Harriers membership now due, now is a great time to join the club and get full value from membership.
The Traralgon marathon is also looming with early-bird entries now open, and a discount included for members.
Please note, numbers will be capped for this event.
