The PCCCT goes “off the beaten track” this Sunday with the running of the Greg and Darlene Jacques Parcel Contracting five kilometres at Penguin..
The event will start and finish at the Penguin Motocross complex at Dial Road and be run in the bush in the vicinity. With the expected rain this week, there are bound to be plenty of puddles and slippery paths to be negotiated.
Some runners love these conditions and throw caution to the wind while others go steady and take great care with their footing.
Picking a winner here is not easy, however one runner who is getting back to his best is Hayden Bishop.
After taking up running, Bishop made rapid improvement until an injury last year set him back. But with solid training he has returned to great form, as his recent starts show.
His main danger could be Aaron Robertson, who is another who is proven in the conditions which are likely to prevail. He certainly has the class and fitness to give it a shake.
Other runners in form who will be chances are Simon Gates, John Badcock, Amie Bramich and Mollie Powell.
Members are reminded that entries close this Sunday for the following week’s Burnie to Ridgley Mountain Classic.
Entries close at 9:30 ready for a 10:00 start and new runners are always welcome.
Nominated time events will be held at 9:05.
