This Sunday’s race is the Molly Malone’s six kilometre handicap commencing at Roundhouse Park, Devonport. The course takes runners to the Bluff lighthouse and return via Victoria Parade and the Devonport Bluff.
With the Feature Race looming – just three weeks away – members will be looking for a sharp hit out, especially after the longer races of the last two weeks.
One of the most improved runners in the Club, Mary-Lou Troughton, could be the hardest to beat. She was a great third last week, her best result of the year. This distance and course will suit her admirably.
One of the backmarkers, Mark Saint-John also had a season best last week when he was a fast-closing fourth. He ran his fastest time ever for that event underlining his current fitness.
Terry Watson, Andrew Hay and Jason Scott have all been prominent in recent events and are strong possibilities while Dale Lancaster Is sure to win a race before the end of the season and it could well be here.
Others who wouldn’t surprise include Tony Stewart, Russell Horton and Amie Bramich.
The race will start at the normal time of 10:00 with entries closing at 9:30.
Nominated time events will be conducted at 9:15 and, in line with our new policy, 12, 13 and 14 year olds may have their nominated time run as part of the main event.
