Race 4: Heybridge, Glow Cosmetics 7km

Members head to Heybridge on Sunday for the next run – the Glow Cosmetics seven kilometre handicap.

The race is on a flat and fast out-and-back course to the weighbridge at Howth. It will be a chance for runners to record some slick times and see where they are with their early season fitness.

Last week’s race was also seven kilometres and should give a good guide to this week’s top chances and chief among these would be Karina Mason who displayed a return to form with a close-up second. She will only need to run up to that to prove very difficult to run down from a front mark.

Ron “Chubby” Chequer has continued on from a good end to last season with several strong runs. Obviously he has trained hard over the summer.

Owen Thomas is another who keeps promising to break through and it could be on Sunday, while Devonport Surf Club stalwarts, Grant McCormack and Wayne Wiseman could easily win without surprising.

Others who will be well suited include Scott Murphy and Paul Birch.

Runners are reminded to wear both their timing chips and chest numbers and to register by 9:30 with a 10:00 start for the race.

Numbers for the nominated time event were down last week with the bad weather but should bounce back this week, especially with the Easter Bunny reported to be appearing. The nominated time event will be held at 9:05.
