Ringwood Athletic Club

On what was a typical Sandown day we had a very cold southerly wind with the rain hovering in the background.  Thankfully the rain held off.  Athletics Vctoria made an early weather call and shortened this years event to be one lap of 3.1 km for all the grades and ages. Normally the Seniors would run two laps.  In hindsight the weather held and they could have gone ahead as normal, but I didn't hear too many complaints about the shorter race.

We can now add a one lap time for the Seniors to the Sandown All Time Lists.

The senior women where led off by Shannon McDade in 11:19 for our fastest womens time of the day.  Scott Benedict was our fastest in the U20 men with 10:26 and just outside his PB.  Ruby Crisp who ran second for the U20 women had the fastest time for the junior girls and was also second fastest overall for our ladies.

Thanks to our timekeeprs for braving the elements, it is greatly appreciated.
