Tough course may suit the backies

The penultimate event of the Professional Cross Country Club of Tasmania will be raced this Sunday as runners line up for the Somerset Pharmacy 10km race in Somerset.

Somerset has become a real club favourite, the event boasting a series of tough, hilly sections and fast break-away flat segments.

With the 2017 season drawing to a close Somerset should attract many fit runners clambering for a win as a reward their long months of training before the final race next weekend.

Frontmarkers Ann Horton, Christine Wright and young Vicky Knapman have all ran well in recent races and appear set to win soon though Sunday’s hilly course may test them.

Backmarkers Bryan Tuit, Kyle Groenewege and Isaac Troughton have been great performers and will be keen to do well before the season concludes.

Aaron Robertson and Hayden Bishop both ran well last Sunday and both will enjoy Sunday’s challenge.

Sunday’s race begins at 10am with registrations open at 9am and closing at 9:30am. A nominated time event begins at 9.15am.
