BARRABOOL EVENT WRAP

It was hot and hilly but that didn’t stop a good number of hardy souls brave the 30 C + conditions. This evolving area will always be tough terrain, but to date each event we’ve had here has been accompanied by heat. Give us a break !!

This was an occasion where the “anytimers” did have the advantage with the cooler weather. Dom C had his run in A grade today, and took the honours over Thursday evening runners Tony McR and Toby C. There were no “anytimers” in B grade, so the strong run of Ed S stands over the great effort of Zoe F, followed by myself and Aimee W. C grade was similar, with Frank S lead home Jenny C in the heat. John G and Peter B battled it out in D grade. Sue T is on the ove back to NZ. Her 57 points assured that she went off with a win in the walking. Anytimers Kimbo J and Nicole B (both on 52pts) were next on the podium finishing ahead of a strong effort in the heat from Tom F (46 pts).

The winners in the West Tech event which closed on Friday night at 6pm were as follows – A grade, Toby C; B grade, Angus S; C grade, Jenny C; D grade, John G; and the Walking, Sue T.

We’ve only 2 events to go in this summer series. This week will be run from Sparrow Park, Hope St, Geelong West. The Start window is 6:30pm to 7pm as usual, with “anytime” available up to 6pm Sunday (for competitors) and anytime for anyone else !! You need to have paid for an entry ($5) to be in the competition. Call Heather on 0418 875 200 if you need help with this. We’ll continue to use the QR code checkin and ask that you wear a mask when in proximity of others at the Start / Finish.

Cheers,

Alan Cooke

Can’t make next Thursday night ?? Don’t despair, we will continue to offer “anytime” participation up to 6pm on the Sunday night post-event. You will need to pay the entry fee to Heather (0418 875 200) to be in the competition. How do you get the map with controls on it ?? I’ll email this out for “anytime” participation on the Thursday evening post-event. Past 6pm Sunday, you can still do the course but your results won’t be in the series competition.

You wont need to pre-register but you will need to do the QR check in and check out. All the usual covid rules apply, ie: wear a mask when in close proximity to others, minimise contact with others, use hand sanitiser before and after the event. We’re using MapRun only, the entry fee is $5 per event, with electronic payment available and preferred.  Please read the Geelong Series participant guidelines
