Crombie wins Gunns Plains

*** Our end of season race will now be at the Burnie Surf Club on Sept 14. Remains an 8km out and back course and race sponsor is still Sea-Lyons Swim School but we are having end-of-season get together upstairs in the surf clubrooms after race.

Yolla’s Phil Crombie surged ahead in the final few hundred metres to comfortably win the Professional Cross Country Club of Tasmania’s Wilson Brown 11km haphil-crombie_FBicon2014ndicap at Gunns Plains on Sunday.

Taking the lead from Garry Heazlewood with about 700 metres left to race Crombie was never seriously threatened and ran out nearly 20 seconds ahead of runner-up Robert Oberrauter.

Winning back in 2004, the 200 run club veteran has registered some outstanding performances this season and fully deserved a win as the season draws to an end.

The Gunns Plains circuit was introduced into the club’s programme only three years ago and on Sunday attracted nearly 70 runners who competed in misty, wet conditions on a flat, easy circuit course.

Good performances from co-markers Ray Spinks and last month’s Ulverstone 5km winner David Murton saw them both run into the top ten together.

Backmarkers Scott Murphy and Jono Price stormed home late as they caught sight of the race leaders while Darren Brown and David Sweetman both enjoyed good runs.

After finishing third a fortnight ago Penguin’s Judy Ray did not make the first ten despite being the quickest female of the day.

Thomas Murton claim fastest time honours.
