Women took out the top 3 placings in race 7 of the Surfer competition. For the second time in the competition Sonia Casanova took line honours followed by Sheila Marcus and then Janet Mazzarolo.
A glitch in race 4 failed to credit Marcus's run in the long course, that having been rectified has seen her rocketed to a commanding 22-point lead in the competition. Barring injury or no show, she should win the competition comfortably.
Angelo Licastro with a PB was first in the short course followed by Tom Mackerras and Cooper Savage who also had a PB.
The handicapper has taken the ever-improving Chloe Morshead out of the podium positions for race 6 and 7, however she commanded enough points in the first 5 races to be 27 points ahead of second place Savage and so should easily win the short course competition.
Congratulations to Anna Gesuale and Jim Salvestro who during this competition both achieved the milestone of 2000km of recorded running on the "Hill"
The pace setters for the long course were Mark Andreazza 32.33m and Eliza Star 35.32m. In the short course pace setters were Ella Savage 15.38m and Angus Gunn 14.20m.
Next week is the last run in the Surfer competition. That will be followed by the annual Lakesview Classic then we commence the Arsova competition. The week of the Lakesview Classic will be a normal registration time.
There will be no virtual runs that week nor a mass start as in previous years, instead after having registered participants can commence the newly marked out course at their leisure.
Subject to no change in NSW Government regulations, the Feral's meet at the green water tower opposite Pioneer Park every Saturday for a 4:30pm start.
