These two races provide some running for city folk taking advantage of the long weekend . The first is a difficult run up 1.3Km to the top of Mt Clarence and is broken down into various age and sex categories. The second is a solid 10Km ,2 lap cross country course around Mt Clarence and is the highlight of an afternoons local running meet. Difficult but rather fascinating events, and up to the standard of organization we have come to expect from the Albany Athletic Club. Race Director : Peter Green.
Wally Cairns Cross country. Saved from extinction,again this year the Wally Cairns has remained in Kings park but will be a two circuit cross country event designd to leave participants legless by the end. Run over a secret course of tracks and grass it should cover about 5km for the short event and 15km for the longer run. Limited toilet facilities require an early start.
Race Director: Jackie Baxendine, Start Time: 8.00am.
Sidchrome Fun Run. The second of the Club’s public fun runs now in it’s third year. An increasingly popular ,fairly fast 10km from Perry Lakes stadium, has all facilities, minimal traffic problems and great prizes donated by Sidchrome, for the first male and female ,plus a spot prize for some lucky finisher.
Race Director: Peter Macdonald, Records: Male: Mike Bonner 30.18 (1985) ,Female: Carol Pickard 38.31 (1984).
I hope you all like this story and let me know what you think of it.
