Pro Feet Podiatry 6.5 km Virtual Handicap Race
A total of 121 runners including 26 first timers participated in the virtual running of the Pro Feet Podiatry 6.5 km handicap all throughout the region and even as far away as Swan Hill. When the handicaps were applied it was Gerry Fitzpatrick who snuck home by 3 seconds from Carol Crawford with Catherine Allison again performing well in third. Fitzpatrick spent most of last season recovering from injury and put the writing on the wall with some fine performances over summer. The fastest of each gender were again Hayley Newman and Grant Simpson.
