Cooee runner, Jason Fehlberg, has won the Anvers Confectionery twelve kilometre handicap at Railton on Sunday.
Fehlberg was not one of the top fancies for the event and admitted he was surprised with his win. However, he has been running consistently and had looked promising a little earlier in the season.
Running over his favourite distance of ten kilometres, Fehlberg also got his preferred terrain and weather, the wind staying away.
These factors combined to see him take the lead from front marker, Eric Hughes, with about five hundred metres to run and then hold off a late challenge from Kyle Groenewege.
Groenewege’s second followed on from a third last week and for him a win can’t be far away. Greg Smith, who won the club marathon earlier in the season, finished third showing he has maintained his form.
Other runners to turn in strong efforts included Owen Thomas, Bryan Tuit and Grant McCormack.
Fastest female was Lyn Saint-John with Brad Taylor the fastest male.
Nominated time winners were Brooke Riley, Nat Luttrell, and Dominic and Mackenzie Troughton.
Yolla runner, Cobie Walker, the pre-race favourite won the Raymond Spinks/CRC twelve kilometre handicap at Somerset on Sunday.
Walker had been showing excellent form all year following some hard training over summer for the Gone Nuts event. Since then he has trained more lightly to nurse some injury “niggles” and this has worked well for him.
In his fifth year with the club, this was Walker’s second win with his debut victory four years ago at Stanley.
Initially, he took up running to lose weight and is now proudly thirty-seven kilograms lighter than when he started.
Taking the lead from a brave Eric Hughes at the ten kilometre mark, Walker had to maintain focus and effort to stall off fast-finishing backmarkers Evan Brett, Kyle Groenewege and Thomas Wilson.
The husband and wife team of Russell and Ann Horton both ran top races while the two back markers Phillip McConnon and Brad Taylor stormed through the field.
Fastest female was Lyn Saint-John with McConnon, having his first run with the club, the fastest male.
Nominated time winners were Kelsey and Eirmear Anderson, Brooke Riley and Will van Rooyen.
