Railton is the venue this Sunday for the penultimate race of the season as members compete in the House of Anvers ten kilometre handicap.
The course is a circuit, starting at Goliath Park and is affectionately described as flat with one hill. However, that one hill, is a long and high one and presents a good challenge.
This is the final race before the major race of the season – the Wynyard to Burnie Feature Race – and, as is traditional, the victor will not receive a penalty for winning until the end of the season. Therefore, competitors can go all-out knowing a win will not affect their handicap for the “big one” the following week.
In addition. with only two races left, time is running out for those close to a victory to make use of all the training of the last months.
Steve Tammens ran second last week in his best result for the year so he is certainly one who is peaking at just the right time. He could definitely go one better on Sunday.
Aaron Robertson looks to have overcome a niggling injury and will be a strong chance while Josh Febey has been running strongly every week without breaking through and that could happen here.
Other good chances look to be Michael Taylor, Gerard Lowry, who trains on this course, Lyn Saint-John and Paul Birch.
Entries will close at 6:00pm on Friday, with the race starting at 9:30. New runners are always welcome with information available at www.pccct.org.
A nominated time event will be conducted at 9:00.
