Some of the best weather conditions ever experienced at the You Yangs greeted the seventy-four enthusiastic runners gathered for the running of the Windows by Geoff Case 10 km handicap. Case was a world champion stair climber so it was fitting that he was the sponsor.
It was noted hill climber, Daryl Burns, who won the King of the Mountains title for the third time. He won by over a minute from Luke Haines who outsprinted Tim Davis.
Invitation runner, Rebecca Green, ran magnificently to be the fastest female whilst Burns also won the generous fastest time money. He was also recognised for reaching his 100 run milestone which included a modern day record of eight wins in eight seasons. Paul Posterino returned from serious injury to win the consolation 5 km.
