.The AJL Heavy Equipment Half Marathon was run in perfect conditions on Sunday. The out-and-back course from West Ulverstone to Turners Beach produced some great efforts from Club members with none better than that of Wynyard architect, Anna Murton.

Murton had been threatening to win a race for some time and was thrilled to finally break through for her first win in her fourth year of running with the club.

After taking the lead from her mother, Liz, at the 17 kilometre mark, Purton was never headed and won in a time a touch slower than she had set for herself.

Together with her father, David, she trains three or four times a week, usually by walking and running with a pack of five greyhounds that are family pets.

Excellent performances from Adrian Lakeland and Patrick McMullen saw them take out the second and third places respectively. John Saltmarsh also ran an excellent race to finish in eighth position.

Fastest time for the men was recorded by Ben Hoare (1:47:58) while Danielle Mitchell was the fastest woman (1:31:37).

Earlier, the nominated time races were won by John Purton, Tali Brown. Quinn Aitken and Lachlan Purton.
