Today's turnout of 41 runners was left a little short of the usual, because of another run - the ABS Fun Run in Belconnen, an annual event on the ACT running Calendar, where teams from IP Australia and Health were competing, amongst others.
BBQ Stakes had a good turn out though, and a return to the area for Bruce Wight for work, saw him turn out again.
Kerrie did the time keeping, Brian Crowe did the recording along with Kerrie, still with foot problems. Last Weeks winner did the timekeeping and will be travelling in the near future to the world cup in South Africa and hiking in that wonderful country. Today we saw Judy Diamond get her 200th run T-Shirt, with a PB of 29:30 in April 2001.
Winner today was Pat Stakelum, now running in this event quite regularly, he now has 13 runs with a PB of 39:33. Second was John Hall, a long time runner of the Stakes, with Jeff King from IP Australia coming in third place.
Sharene Hurnen in the North Face 100 (kms) recorded a respectable time of 22 Hours 22 minutes and 18 Seconds. It is an event in the Blue Mountains, and must have meant a lot of running in the dark, and she did it while wearing her Vibram socks.
