South East Runners’ event from the Jetty Headland

Last weekend’s South East Runners’ event was held along the foreshore from the Jetty Headland. Conditions were perfect and there was a good contingent of runners, walkers and dogs.

The longest event on the day was the 8km, which attracted eight competitors. Line honours went to Zoe Maccan, with her younger brother Adam not too far behind. In third place was Kathryn Jacobs, who held off a fast finishing Richard Brown.

First place in the 4km run went to another Maccan - Andrew - who managed to achieve a sub-20 minute time by one second. In second place was Andrea Morales, with Donna Maccan finishing third.

Sonya Lawry was the first runner home in the 2km run, with Duke Polkinghorne and Joshua Maccan having a tussle for second and third. Duke held off Joshua by just three seconds.

For the walkers Chris case was the first back by a country mile. Milly Speelman was second, and Jessie Eltringham and Alison Reddyhough shared third place.  Maureen Dickason was the only taker for the 2km walk, and therefore took home the points.

Next weekend’s event will be very scenic but hilly! The start venue is from the carpark at Blue Haven beach. Start time is 4pm on Saturday, and the distances on offer are 2km, 5km, or a 10km run.
