Balwyn Central

Saturday, 25 March 2017

It was the first of the Autumn Classic series, and points were on everyone's mind.  With an even spread either side of a central start, everyone soon dispersed in different directions. There was a nice mix of clusters offering easy pickings, and some longer legs, and lots of route choice as well.

Plenty of runners obtained a perfect score on A course (and the top two B runners came pretty close).  First back on A were Ian, Steven, Paul, Tim and Ted.  B course proved popular, and the top 5 were Ian, Tim, Bruce, Jay and Peter D.  Scores were close on PW, but Len came out on top with 62 points, ahead of Mark, Ros, Helen and Ron.

Come along next Wednesday to Kerrimuir - season tickets will be on sale. Make sure you get yours and take advantage of big savings!
