It was a warm day for hill climbing, but the views were worth the effort. We got close up to some large rocks, and saw kangaroos as well. Young and old alike all enjoyed spending time in the beautiful forest, navigating their way around the courses set for us by Ian Davies. The DROC crew were on hand to ensure everything went smoothly, and it was fantastic to see so many club members come along, including many of our juniors. We also sold lots of JWOC Jam!
Ian Dodd was 6th on course 1, one of a handful of runners to complete a tough physical course in under 50 minutes. Also well up the list was Andras Bogdanovits, our next MelbushO course setter. Janine Steer and Graham Wallis were top 10 finishers on course 2, as was up and coming junior James Love. Course 3 saw Martin Steer a comfortable winner, with a strong second from Eric Louw. Our juniors did themselves proud on Course 4, with Daniel Kaman in second, Amber Louw in 5th, Luca, Heni and Arika all in the top half of the field, and Sammy Love also doing really well in only her second event.
Thanks to all who came along to help out, and to support the club. Our next big event is the Sprint Double on Sunday May 21 at Yarra Valley Grammar School in Ringwood. Stay tuned!
