Tuesday Event Report

Arndell Park

We haven’t been down to Truganina South for a while and Tuesday night demonstrated we have been missing out on some very good maps. Getting there was no effort at all, travelling via Blackshaws & Dohertys Road proving to be a good option.

The weather was near perfect for the event, not to hot or cold and the start venue was great looking out towards the Federation bike trail. Don as usual set a very cunning course that included a number of path options along the creek, including a surprise climb on what was a flat map up to control 10 located on the bike trail. The course had both runners and walkers thinking about route choice right from the start. For the running courses, there was a wide variation in length of the different route choices, but it was difficult to assess on the spot which was the best route. A lot of us did not get it right. Before the start Don told us that he initially had the A course getting 20 controls, but then found a route that meant the distance was too short so decided to add in another control. As most of the A course runners travelled over 10kms, curiosity remains as to what the 9km route choice was.

In Power Walking the speedy Maria Main was the top scorer and will be hard to beat in Division 1. Newcomer Geoff Robinson was 2nd, only a few points behind, and it will be interesting to see how the series unfolds with Len, Jo, Geoff and Tim absent from this event. Division 2 and 3 regulars were well placed and all seemed to enjoy this map.

See you next week at Airport West.
