Eureka’s Sound Performance at 2010 Vic Relay Championships
Although the team of runners was small this year, just three teams, some very good results were achieved on Sunday at the Woodlands Park Estate, just north of Tullamarine. The map area was confined to what is known as the back-paddock and has some interesting granite outcrops but is generally open with scattered trees and some areas of fallen scrubby timber.
On the B Course, Chris Norwood, Aislinn Prendergast and Roch Prendergast recorded a very creditable second place, while on the C Course, Ernie Christopher, Mark Valentine and John Erwin grabbed a third.
In our other team, the mixed combination of Anitra Dowling, Judy Prendergast and Tom Norwood, had their hopes dashed by an administrative error, which had Tom left with the Long leg, although as you might expect from the fit 80 year old, he duly completed.
The trend to run relays on this type of terrain seems to have gained favour, so all members should consider having a go next year – it is worth double points for the Rockhopper Trophy as well!
