The PCCCT heads to Fernglade this Sunday for the running of the Wilkinson’s Pharmacy 6km Handicap. The race will be starting later, at 1pm, to allow runners a chance to pay respects to the ANZAC’s in the morning.

A familiar and popular course, it consists of sealed road, trail, and grass, with some hills thrown in for good measure. If we get some rain through the week, it will make for a challenging but enjoyable run for members.

Ellen looks favourite to take this race out

Ellen Burgess looks to be a good chance of taking line honours, having recorded a strong run into fifth at Wynyard last week. A member of the committee, Ellen puts equally as much hard work and dedication into her running as her position in the club. This course will suit her well. 

Dominic Troughton wouldn’t surprise if he broke the tape first. He again featured on the podium last week and must be very close to securing a win.

New member Sam Mawer impressed on debut with the club, recording the fastest time of the day and finishing in fourth. If he can reproduce his form on that day, a good result certainly awaits.

Others to watch are Jason Scott and David Wright.

Runners are reminded that entries are online only and close at 6pm Friday. Entries for the Burnie to Ridgley Mountain Classic are also open and will close midnight Sunday. New members are always welcome and encouraged to check our website.

The nominated time event will start at 12:30pm.
