EEL RACE ENDURO

Our second Enduro, at Seaford, was quite a different kettle of fish from the first!  The new map and course were expertly prepared by Andrew Johnston. The event has been cancelled twice due to covid (and ironically it was covid that prevented me from taking part in it).  Featuring the canals of Patterson Lakes, and the narrow wedge between the Wetlands and the bay, contours were in short supply.  With so many choices right out of the start triangle, brains needed to be fully engaged from beginning to end.  Andrew’s course has been widely acclaimed – check it out via the link below.

The Map

Official results will be published soon; meantime, here are the MapRun leaderboards for each course.

Run120 Results

The winner was Andrew B, taking just under 20 km to achieve a perfect score of 1000 points.  Second and third placed Victoria and Steven had time up their sleeves but had made decisions to drop a control, which cost them the chance to clean up the course

Run90 Results

A comfortable win to Martin, the only 90 min runner to score more than 1000 points.  It was a close contest for placings, with Hania just pipping Peter D by 20 points.

PW120 Results

Quite a contest took place on the Power Walker course, with Vic prevailing to score 1200 points. Ken was not far behind on 1120, and Sue was third, on 1080.

Next Saturday’s event is at Chirnside Park, starting from Goldentree Drive Reserve.  Bring your climbing legs … and a credit card if you would like to buy a Season Pass for the remaining Winter events.  Find out more about season passes.
