The PCCCT – Running Club heads to the beautiful Tasmanian Arboretum at Eugenana this Sunday for race 23 of the season – the LifeVantage Independent Distributor (Susan Moodie) five-kilometre handicap.
The course may be short, but is challenging as runners complete two laps of 2.5km each incorporating unsealed tracks around the lake and a short, sharp hill climb.
Last year the course was used for the first time and the race was well attended. A similar response is expected Sunday, especially as it is scheduled later in the year with only three more races before the season’s climax – the Wynyard to Burnie Feature Race.
As usual, there are many chances but one runner who will love this course is first season runner, Alison Ridderhof.
Ridderhof has good recent form with her best results being a second at Romaine Park five weeks ago and a great third over a very similar course at Penguin two weeks ago.
On that day Jordan Matthews finished second with Jean-Christophe Bonneville fourth and they look the two hardest for Ridderhof to beat.
Other strong chances include Jason Scott, Steven Tammens, Joshua Febey and Emma Turner.
The race starts at 9:30am with entries (on-line only) closing at the normal time of 6pm Friday.
There will be a nominated time event at 9am.
Runners are reminded that entries for the Simons Carpets Wynyard-to-Burnie Feature Race are now open and will close on Sunday August 28. New runners are always welcome.
