PCCCT Race 19

Last year the PCCCT – Running Club introduced handicapped relay events into the season programme for the first time. There was a 4 x 10.55 km team relay run in conjunction with the marathon and then a 2 x 10.55 event run with the half-marathon.

Both of the relay events proved very popular with a good number of teams in each event.

Consequently, the Cub scheduled both relay events again this year (the marathon version has already been run) but, in addition, decided to hold a standalone relay.

This race – the MA & LJ Bates Plumbing Teams 4 x 5km Handicap – will be run this Sunday.

The course will utilise a section of the newly constructed Coastal Pathway at Preservation Bay. Competitors will start and finish at the Penguin Surf Lifesaving Club with each runner heading out-and-back first to the east and then to the west. This format will give great viewing for spectators and team members alike

There are twenty-six teams entered meaning a total of 104 competitors will be involved.

It is impossible to attempt to pick the winning team but some great names have been invented including Girls Gone Rogue, Footy Franks, Fossils and Randoms.

Entries closed last Sunday with the race starting at 9pm this Sunday.

There will be a Club supplied barbecue after the race but there will be no nominated time event this week.
