Race 2 – Cooee


Liane small

Burnie runner, Liane Hanson was thrilled to cross the line first on Saturday for her maiden win with the Professional Cross Country Club of Tasmania.

The Dowling McCarthy Tyres 5 kilometre handicap took place on an out-and-back course at Cooee.

Quickly taking the lead from go-marker, John Lucas, Hanson, who started off the second front mark, was never in danger. She has greatly improved her fitness this year through heavy training over the summer. She acknowledged her husband, Shane, for inspiring her to enter and successfully complete some challenging events in recent months.

Hanson has no great plans for the remainder of the year but just wished to continue to enjoy her running with the club, although it will now be off a more challenging mark.

Second was Kelly Baxter with Dallas Van Rooyen a promising third. Other good performances were returned by race favourite Greg Smith, who finished fourth, and Ann Horton while Ricky Brown showed a win is not far off.

Young runner Edward Murchie was just outside the top ten in a promising effort.

Fastest male and female were Ewen Troughton and Judy Ray.

Earlier the nominated time winners were Isabelle Murchie, Thomas Ward, Mackenzie Troughton and Dominic Troughton.
