A cool, drizzly morning greeted team AE for the annual ANSW Half Marathon Championships. 3 laps of a 7km course lay ahead for those tackling the half marathon on what is often a fast course.
Godwin Mugarula continued his stellar season running a new pb of 1.13.43 with assistance from Bosco Huang (1.16.02), Michael Mangli-Vincent (1.17.13) and Philip Balnave (1.18.05) for the men’s open team to take home the team silver medal.
The ladies team managed to field 4 runners which lead them to the open Gold. Lisa Biffin and Naomi Tancread were out on marathon tempo runs, gearing up for New York and Rebecca Holmes and Jude Gregory enjoyed the course as their Sunday Long run to register the win for the girls.
The 7km support race saw the fast improving Nicole Hutton smash her previous pb in a new time of 29.59. All of Nicole’s hard work and persistence has been paying off with pbs occurring every time she races.
