The PCCCT – Running Club is heading to Penguin this week for the Zenith Wealth 5.3km handicap.
This will be the second time this course has been used after proving very popular last year. The race will start and finish at the Dial Park sporting complex at Penguin. While the first and final parts of the race will be on sealed roads, there will be a tricky section of trail in the middle part, using mountain bike trails on the Dial Range. This section will provide muddy, difficult footing as well as being quite undulating making it both interesting and challenging.
With the season rapidly coming to a climax, many runners who have been close without winning in recent weeks will be keen to take out the victory.
One who will be perfectly suited by the course is Christine Wright.
Wright has displayed consistent form of late, getting closer to winning as the season has progressed. She had “top ten” finishes in the tough Ironman and again last week at Gunns Plains proving she is very fit.
There is a large group of runners with great chances who are also in contention including Andrew Lucas, Steve Tammens, Darlene Jacques, Gerard Lowry and David Murton.
Entries close at 6pm Friday with the race starting at 9:30am.
There will be a nominated time event at 9am.
Runners are reminded that entries for the half-marathon and teams half-marathon close at 11:59pm on Sunday.
