Another pleasant morning for running saw 88 athletes travel to the Wurdiboluc Reservoir for the Fit For Living 12.6 km handicap. Of the 88 starters, twelve opted for the 5 km consolation event.The calm conditions were a contrast to most of the previous races at the venue. In a close finish, Revolution Fitness Studio gym manager, Luke Haines, ran through the field strongly to score by 30 metres from the ultra consistent Dave Elward with Aaron Herbert less than 10 metres away third. It was second year runner Haines’ ninth race with the club. Kate Bramley and Ron Thomas were the fastest of their gender by large margins. Denise Elson was applauded for reaching her 200 run milestone.
