Devonport: Devonport Mazda Front Markers 5km and Simons Design Centre Back Markers 5km

This Sunday the PCCCT will conduct split division races at Devonport Bluff with the Devonport Mazda Front Markers and Simons Design Centre Back Markers, both over five kilometres.

These events are very popular with runners because as well as competing in one event, they get to watch the other – the only time this happens in the season.

The races are conducted over a four lap course of Meercroft Park and this also makes them great for spectators.

The strongest chances to take out a victory in the Front Markers look to be Sally Milbourne, David Murton and Sven Mason while Lorraine Shepherd and Tim Dowling must also be considered. Milbourne was a great sixth last week while Mason would have started favourite if he had been able to compete, following his second in the season’s pipe-opener.

The Back Markers looks a perfect race for Simon Gates who has had two close finishes so far this year. He won this event in 2017 and no doubt would like to take it out for a second time. Joshua Febey,  Andrew Bates and Ewen Troughton are three young stars of the Club and any of those could win without surprising.

Thomas Murton will start from the very back mark and could take out the win and fastest time double.

Members are reminded that numbers and timing chips must be worn.

There will be nominated time events at 9:15.
