Melbourne Marathon Preview

Andrew Creer

The main weekend of the running season has arrived – yes Melbourne Marathon. Heaps of the BUAC family tackling one of the events: Foster, Watson, Rowe, Cripps, Wilkinson, Lonsdale, Stolz are just a few names. Good luck to all and if there are any results Gav does not list in his summary on Facebook please add them.

Well done to all the BUAC junior members who competed and podiumed at the SSV Regionals at the tracks yesterday. Almost all are now off to the State Final in a couple of weeks. Jorja Vandenberg (sprints!!) Charlotte Murphy, Tullie Rowe, Toby & Wil McCaig, Phoebe & Beatrice Lonsdale, Hamish Wild, Flynn Baker & Jayden Padgham.
Of mild interest to some to note that local aths superstar Archie Reid was rolled in the 1500m by Harry Cashin from Donald who must be some sort of runner.


Track this week is a Round 2 program. 1500m at 2:35, 3k at 3:15, 400m at 3:45.
Online entry link here (by 8pm tonight).
