Check your result Event Report – Warralong Conditions were ideal for the Warralong event (and even the Yarra crossing at Fitzsimmons Lane wasn’t too bad) set by Peter Lewis. The Warralong map is a mixture of flat though bushy terrain along the Plenty River and then significant hills in the streets of Yallambie and Greensborough. The ideal route would avoid going between these too often. The hills also are a potential trap for power walkers as it is easy to underestimate the time it takes to get back (have been caught this way myself on this map). Looking on Strava it seems those not doing A course either headed north or south gathering the required number there (with an overlap in the middle). Peter Lewis provided multiple alternatives and potential traps (was it better to get 20 after 19, staying east of the river or after 13?) For A course, Steve O’C. and Bryan S. took out the first two places, followed by another experienced A-runner, Ron S. For B., Victoria G. came in first, followed by David P., returning from a break. Katherine T. was third for B. The largest division this week was C. Damien S. was first back, followed by David K. and Moira K. There was also a healthy number of D runners as well. Louise L. was first in, followed by Cliff C. and Ewen T. David S. once again scored the most points among the power walkers, with 49 out of 70 but not far behind were Russell B. and Lauris S., with 44 and 40, respectively. Several experienced power walkers were late back – easy to do on this map! Next week – another mixture of river-running and suburban hills when we head south for the Viewbank map, starting at Banyule Flats.
