Don: Cradle Coast Sports and Events 7km

This Sunday members are able to enjoy the tracks in the Don Reserve as they compete in the Cradle Coast Sports and Event seven kilometre handicap.

The race starts at finishes at the Don Cricket Ground and heads out and back to the river before taking runners on a loop through the bush below the pool.

After three events this year, many runners have shown excellent form and the race will be very competitive.

However, the favourite to break the ribbon could very well be John Badcock, “the flying farmer”. A win would be very well deserved, as Badcock has worked hard to regain fitness after a bad fall from a bike during a race just over a year ago. His form this year has been excellent as he backed up from a close fourth two weeks ago with a great run over a shorter distance last week.

Marcus Cook ran a great race at Port Sorell and will be hard to beat. Others with strong chances include Hayden Bishop, Kelly Baxter and Terry Watson.

Young Gun Thomas Murton is back in great form and a win would not surprise, even starting from the tightest of handicaps.

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.

The nominated time events will be held at 9:05.
