A cool, calm morning perfect for racing greeted the field of 88 that turned out for the running of the Steigen 5 km sealed handicap at Waurn Ponds. Unfortunately, some misguided soul altered some of the marker cones which caused the leading pack to cut 80 metres off the course.
The handicappers worked hard to compensate for that and after applying the sealed handicap it was Alan Jenkins who was declared the winner. It was the fourth club win for Jenkins who has been the co-ordinator of Masters Athletics in Geelong for many years and he attributed his fine performance to the track work there on Wednesday evenings.
2021 club champions, Rachael Thompson and Liam Drady were the fastest of their gender.
