Pattie Galvin, who was racing her 500th club race, turned it into a double celebration when she crossed the line first in the Revolutions Fitness Studio 10 km handicap from Balyang Sanctuary to Fyansford and return. Galvin is the first female member to reach the 500 run milestone, having first run in 1984. Persistent dizzle dampened the 105 starters for the first half of the race before gradually clearing to provide perfect running conditions. Galvin was able to hold off a late challenge from the fast finishing Charlie El-Hage to win by 30 metres. Natalie Mensch and Ron Thomas were once again convincing fastest time winners in the race towards club champion honours.
