Race 22: Fish Frenzy 5km handicap.

The fast and furious Fish Frenzy 5 kilometre handicap from West Beach is the next event for the PCCCT. This event will also incorporate the club’s 5 kilometre championships.

With the Feature Race just two weeks away, runners will be keen for a solid hit-out and the racing is certain to be close and exciting.

Shorter events tend to favour in-form front-markers and the one who could take this out is club president, Barry Ling.

Ling is one or the few runners who began with the club in its first year, 1968, who is still competing. He is the club record holder for most starts with almost 1150.

Although he is carrying a few niggly injuries these days, he has shown lately he is still very competitive.

Seventeen year old Will Cleaver, in his first year with the club, impressed with his effort last week and will be hard to hold out, while Mike Taylor, John Purton and Mary-Lou Troughton also look like strong chances.
