Race 3 of the 2022 PCCCT – Running Club season will take competitors to Port Sorell this Sunday for the The Trend Shed seven-kilometre handicap.
The race will start adjacent to the Panatana Paddling Pool Family Park in South Esplanade before crossing the Rivulet and using tracks in the Squeaking Point area.
This course is similar to last week’s at Don and so it makes sense to look at last week’s results to try to select the main chances.
Chief among these must surely be Ben Young who not only finished second but that result followed another second in the first race of the season.
There is no runner in better form and if Young does not go one better here, it will certainly happen in the next couple of races
Andrew Winkel started from the very back mark last week and was just five seconds behind Young in finishing third. He could very easily turn the tables.
However, there is a host of other runners who will improve with a couple of events under their belts and would not surprise if they won. David Murton, Rhian Miles and Tony Abel, who loves this kind of terrain, are all chances, as is Anne Thomas who trains in the area and will have a home-ground advantage.
New runners are always welcome but must register for membership at www.pccct.org where entries for the race can also be made. These close at 6pm on Friday with the race to begin at 9:30am
There will be nominated time events at 9:00am.
