GEELONG EVENT REPORT – KING OF THE MOUNTAINS

A Total Fire Ban Day had not been declared so it was left to your co-ordinators to decide whether to run the King of the Mountain event last Thursday in blistering conditions. With the well-being of the surprisingly strong roll up of willing participants in mind, the number of required controls for all running courses were reduced and the walking time was reduced by 15 minutes. In all other respects this was a premium event. The new map was perfectly suited for a KoM and Toby C had prepared a truly challenging course for all grades. Well done Toby – I cant wait to get back onto this map in future series with more favourable weather conditions !!

Our unbeaten KoM champion, Luke H, again proved a class above to take out A grade. Others to challenge their body and mind in this grade were Andrew T, Sam V and Steve G. Duncan McL continued his dominance in B grade to be a clear winner from myself, Paul A and then Sofie vG the first female in. Steve and Natasha P were well rewarded for their efforts in C grade being first ahead of Fiona F, Chelsea F and Peter B. Tania E was the leader in D grade followed by Brad S and Mel B. Daniel S (65 points) continued his dominance in the walking. Gerard S (54 pts) did enough to be next ahead of Louise D and Carmel B (both 52 pts), with a further group on 51 points. Lorraine C chose a tough night to bring along her daughter and grandchildren. Hopefully they will be back in more pleasant conditions. Male and Female leads in each grade were presented with the coveted King of the Mountain mug. Well done all !!

That brings us to the mid-series break, with our next event set for Thursday 31st January at Jan Juc. There is still lots of opportunity to scratch that StreetO itch in the meantime, with the various Melburne based series running throughout the Festive Season, and closer to home the Surf Coast series operating on Saturdays through January. Thanks to all those who have helped make this such a strong series to date. A special mention to Duncan McL. We wont be seeing Duncan in the new year, as work will take him elsewhere in the country. Apart from being a regular participant, in the relatively short time that Duncan has been involved in StreetO, he has been very generous in volunteering his time to set courses and help out in many ways. All the best for the future !!

Enjoy the holiday season, stay healthy and happy, and I hope to see everyone during the Surf Coast series – Cookie
