Gunns Plains is the venue of the Kevin Burn Memorial/Brown Family 13.5km handicap to be raced over a circuit course taking in both sides of the Leven River starting at Wings’ Wildlife Park.
With the Feature Race just two weeks away, members will be looking for a good strong hit out over this longer distance.
Club races run the last three weeks have all been won by women members and one of the best chances this week is also a woman who has shown the distance will suit her perfectly.
Although she was only eleventh in last week’s six kilometre event, Kelly Baxter was an excellent second in the recent half marathon showing she is extremely fit and ready to win. She will certainly look a likely victor at some stage of the run.
Terry Watson has impressed in recent races and could be the main danger following his second two weeks ago at Railton.
Others who look strong chances include Russell Horton, Andrew Hay, and the winner of this event last year, Amie Bramich. Although rehandicapped, Bramich has continued to improve and has looked a likely winner for some time.
Entries will close at 9:30, with the race starting at 10:00.
Entries for the Feature Race also close this Sunday and can be made at the race or on the PCCCT website.
A nominated time event will be conducted at 9:15.
