The Victorian Club Relays were held at Mt Lofty, near Eppalock – an area of spur gully terrain with some small rocky areas, and some thicker vegetation. Due to the dry summer, the tracks were dusty and sometimes hard to pick. The first half of each course was on open, fast ground, but many teams came unstuck on the second half which was much slower, and harder to read.
DROC fielded five teams across four courses, and came away with very pleasing results – including a fantastic win for our Course 3 combination of Peter Yeates, Pam King and Carl Stemp. Pete laid the groundwork with a fast run, just a handful of seconds behind the quickest runner. Pam kept her cool as other teams fell by the wayside, her steady pace bringing the team into first. Carl just had to complete the course safely, and they were home with a couple of minutes’ margin over the next team, taking a well earned victory!
Our other teams all acquitted themselves very well on what proved to be challenging courses, against tough competition. Well done all! Results are here
