A burst water main delayed the start of the Corrective Chiropractic 10 km handicap at Queenscliff and caused a change to the course which made it far more demanding. Eventually, the 82 starters set sail in perfect conditions. It was Alan Jenkins, revelling in being injury free for the first time in 2 years, who overtook Joanne Macarthy 20 metres from the finish to score narrowly. Jenkins who had experienced achillies problems is the co-ordinator of Geelong Masters Athletics which is held at Landy Field on Wednesday nights. Aaron Herbert, who like MacCarthy is a first year member, was third. Course director Genevieve Pape was the fastest female whilst Ron Thomas continued his success in the fastest male division.
