Lee’s Wrap – Week 7, Balyang Sanctuary

Eleven brave souls threw caution to the wind and came along to the first event back after the Surf Coast Series (apparently, it’s still summer).  Their bravery was rewarded by sunshine and very little wind.  Unfortunately the earlier rain had rendered many parts of the course muddy and slippery, which resulted in a fall and a drowned (in a puddle) phone.

We welcomed back 7 of our regulars, but were also delighted to welcome Kerri-Ann & Hayley, both returning after a long absence (though we did see Kerri-Ann at our Surf Coast events). Also a special welcome to newcomers Dan & his daughter Audrey.  They both thoroughly enjoyed their first run with us.

Run A

Andrew T managed to beat Toby C by just 10 seconds to retain his perfect score. Toby chose the more efficient route but Andrew was just that bit faster on his feet.

Run B

When you’re the only one running it’s yours to lose, thankfully Zoe F finished the course and took the 100 points!

Run C

Hayley O, Dan & Audrey B all chose to try RunC and all managed to beat old-timer Jenny C with superior route choices (and younger, faster legs).

Run D

As per the Run B course, Peter B just had to finish to take the win. Well done Peter.

PW65

Lynda M misjudged the timing so ended up losing enough points to hand the win to John C. Kerry-Ann J took the bronze.

Park Street Summer Series 2022-23 – Google Drive

Next event is at Bob Pettitt Reserve, Jan Juc. A more Surf Coast event than an actual Surf Coast series event. The weather is looking summer like again so take the opportunity for a post run/walk dip in the ocean.

Hope to see you there.

Lee (and the team)
