In Sunday’s four kilometre run of the Jamberoo Joggers it was a group of the more seasoned runners who were the best performers.
Whilst it may be appropriate to apply the analogy of “ageing like fine wine” to this assembly of joggers, unfortunately there were others where a comparison to vinegar would be more fitting.
As has happened several times in recent weeks, Leonie Shepstone set the pace for the whole run and was a winner in a time similar to that she was recording four years ago.
Randall Harris put in a solid effort and was the only male to manage a top-five place, finishing just two seconds ahead of the consistent Amanda Koorey.
The other two to win bonus points were Ruth Mawbey and Kate Harris.
Leonie Shepstone with 22 points leads the competition from Randall Harris (19) and Amanda Koorey (16).
Following the run, race controller Meg Behl-Shanks made a belated trophy presentation to the winner of the last competition, Karen Mion.
Joel Mion recorded a personal best time to be a clear winner of the two and half kilometre run.
In second place was Tahlia Koorey and she was followed by a series of tight finishes featuring Tireni Mawbey, Lara McGee and Holly McGee.
The leader of the short-course championship is Zeffani Koorey (21) from Tahlia Koorey (14) and Annique Burnett (13).
Samuel Mawbey improved his PB by half a minute to win the one-lap event. Callan Mawbey and Ethan McGee were the next two home with both of these youngsters recording PBs.
Isabella Mawbey and Lilli Mawbey were the others to figure in a top five finish.
Ashleigh Ellis and Samuel Mawbey share the lead of the on of the one-lap championship with a three point lead over Jessica Ellis.
