Striders Sparkle At Twilight

536818_644791335545091_296340536_aThis year’s 6th Twilight running festival attracted a contingent of keen Striders.  The events kicked off in very uncomfortable 30 degree heat and oppressive humidity making the going tough for everyone participating.
Despite the heat there were some very impressive results and PB’s achieved. The course was slightly altered this year but is still a scenic run along and over the river and through the leafy suburbs that line it.
Dean Cane competed in the 5km event, finishing in 16:48 min (that’s a blistering pace of 3:21 min/km!), placing 10th overall and 1st in his category.
Running in the 10k event were Julie Turner (41:39), Elzette Roos (47:40), Claire Baylis (1:05:04), Ryan Moore (41:18), Matt Baker (41:18), Chris Edwards (41:26), Maideyi Collins (56:11) and Jason Croston (43:32). Representing Striders in the half marathon event was Martin Stirling (1:51:06), Yvonne Baylis (1:41:26), Keryn Pauley-Miller (1:42:47), Jenny Cawood (1:48:48), Louise Dunn (1:49:21), Miranda McGown (2:12:46), Julie Bayliss (2:13:45), Kellie Brown (2:14:54) and Lisa Millar (2:20:12). The volunteers who helped out on the day did a wonderful job and provided plenty of much needed encouragement and cheering from the roadside.  A big thank you to them all.
Sincere Apologies for anyone who may have been missed.
Yvonne Baylis
