Race two of the PCCCT’s season was run a 6km event run in Ulverstone starting and finishing at Legion Park. After a frosty start to the day, the weather was sunny and still at race time providing perfect conditions and some fast times were recorded.
The course was run on a variety of surfaces, including a 500m section on the beach, and proved popular with competitors.
Another good field of 52 runners took part and was led home by the race favourite, Jason Scott who had been second in the first race of the season.
This was Scott’s first win with the Club and came in his second year of competitive running.
However, prior to joining the PCCCT, he had been running for several years, generally preferring longer trail-type runs. His longest to date has been 44km. He has also been a keen bike rider.
He had a good battle all the way with co-markers Will van Rooyen and Kendall Buckley to whom he gave a small start. Buckley had a great debut run with the Club, to eventually finish a close third.
Graham Higgins, also having his first PCCCT run was a good sixth while others to catch the eye for the future included Paul Pilkington, Terry Watson and Roselyn Hendriks.
Jason Fehlberg was fastest male with Buckley the fastest female.
Earlier the nominated time winners were Brian Paine, Scarlett Cassidy, Maya Bramich and Mia Fehlberg.
