GEELONG REGION CROSS COUNTRY

SEASON 2015
SANDOWN ROAD RELAYS WRAP
The traditional icy conditions at Sandown Park greeted runners for the XC15 Road Relays. The rain was brief and the wind abated early actually making for some pretty good running conditions! The course was run clockwise this year with most agreeing that the longer downhill segments made for an easier run. 

The big highlight of the day was the Premier Men defending their title and recording their first win of the season. We were gifted to have Craig Mottram leading the team off. The buzz and atmosphere that Craig creates when he runs for Geelong is always exciting to see. He didn't disappoint and gave the boys a solid lead. Consistent running from the entire team allowed Nick Wightman to relax and cruise to victory. Nick did not do this and smashed his leg to nearly outdo Craig with the fastest leg of the day.

The Div 6 mens team also recorded a big W. Shane Keddie ran a solid time that was complimented by Hutchy's anchor leg. Congrats boys!

A nice showing from the Div 1 Ladies saw them finish just shy of the podium.

AV RESULTS

A MASSIVE THANK YOU must go to the timers on the day. Cathryn, Paul, Julz, Julie, Scrivo, Cassidy, Brett and Despina. Your help was very much appreciated by all.

There are several discrepancies in the results. The U20 women don't have any results registered though everything was submitted correctly. Hopefully this is rectified by AV shortly. Apologies that your results aren't included in the report as I couldn't source them.
