Beyond 8k Handicap

A very strong wind made conditions tough for the field of 65 that turned out for the running of the Beyond 8 km handicap at Ocean Grove on Sunday morning. Fortunately there were some sheltered sections within the ti tree which provided welcome relief.

It was first year member, Kristen Evans, in just her ninth run with the club who hit the lead with 200 metres to go and scored by 35 metres from Dawn Fraser with secretary Jeff Walker 50 metres behind in third. Alana Plyman and Liam Drady were once again the fastest, compiling valuable championship points.
