Barr wins at Wynyard

graemebarrwin2014 Devonport athlete Graeme Barr scored a narrow win in the Professional Cross Country Club of Tasmania’s Wrights Mechanical 8km handicap at Wynyard on Sunday.

Born and raised in Wynyard, it was Barr’s first win since the collecting a sash at Railton in 2010.

Over 90 runners assembled at the Wynyard Showgrounds on a sunny morning enjoying perfect running conditions.

The picturesque course incorporates walking tracks along-side the Inglis River as well as a challenging climb up the hill near Fossil Bluff.

Lyndon Stott, one of the race favourites, was hot on the heels of Barr to cross the line as runner-up.

Stott has never finished outside the top five in all his starts this season and now looks primed and ready to win.

In his best position since winning the Stowport 8km a few years ago Gerard Leary finished fourth just behind Hobart’s Darren Brown.

Devonport’s Mollie Powell had little trouble with the course and ran a promising seventh.
