Congratulations to UNI veteran Russ Jenkins on his 80 minute half marathon and another age group win (50-59 male) at the Geelong Half Marathon. This run now moves Russ into second place (from third place) in the World Masters Age Group rankings. Well done Russ, another great run and a very nice sash.
It appears that swerving for the first lady’s finishers tape (photo below) may have cost Russ a second which would have seen him finish with a sub 80 minute half marathon. The Noosa half is not far away so hopefully Russ will be able to get sub 80 minutes there.
This course looks great along the beautiful Barwon River and some more information and results are on the link below.
