Thursday Evening Events in Geelong Summer Series November to February; Winter Series June to July Check For Events Geelong Series Geelong Summer Series Is Underway! Check your result Event Report – Queens Park We had perfect conditions for the run/walk around the Queens Park river precinct last Thursday night. This was matched by our best numbers for the series to date. Our aim will be to maintain these good numbers through the Surf Coast series and then the resumption of the Geelong summer series. With only 2 ways in and out of the park, navigational choices were always going to be critical and this certainly proved to be the case as several participants found themselves passing control points that they had already been to. Luke H had a strong run in A grade to lead in Tony McR and Toby C. In B grade, Lee W came in 1 minute ahead of Ed and Helen S, though he’d covered an extra 1 km over this pair. There was very little separating the remaining trio of Don F, Zoe F and Aimee W. John G had a strong run in C grade to lead home Jenny C (welcome back !!), with Angus S next. Even his leg speed couldn’t make up for the extra 1.7 km that he covered compared to the leaders. With his work commitments behind him, Glenn M has eased back into StreetO with a D grade win, leading home Sofie vG, Jane S and Heather L. Competition amongst the walkers has gone up a notch. Sue T with 59 points backed up last week’s win, leading home the trio of Carmen B, Linden Y and Bernard K (all on 56 pts and split by time), followed by Kim J and Nicole B (both on 55 pts). We now have a break through the festive season but do not despair as the Surf Coast series gives the opportunity to explore coastal towns that you may not be so familiar with. Check out the website for details of this series which covers the 4 Saturdays in January. With a 4pm start, you have the opportunity for a swim pre or post event. I’ll continue to send out reminders of this series and also the resumption of the Geelong summer series. Thanks for supporting our activities, enjoy whatever break you do have and keep encouraging those procrastinating friends, family or neighbours that like the idea of StreetO participation but havent actually taken the actions to make it a reality.
