Victorian 10k - 22nd July 2012
A sunny but breezy day greeted the 178 runners for the Victorian 10k, the first to be completed on this course. At the 1K point 5 runners were ahead, but by the 5K mark it was down to two with Jim Bulman and James Askew running side by side. Rosie Smith had a clear lead in the ladies race. In the latter stages of the race James pulled away to beat Jim by a small margin. Shaun O'Grady completed the top three. Rosie Smith finished 6th overall and 1st lady followed by Tracey Waller and Joanne Lee. Other New Marske winners included Sharon Bulman 1st w35, Joanne Goldsmith 3rd w40, Kath Aspin 1st w45, Mark Bradley 3rd m50, Phil Miles 2nd m70 and Jim Conaghan 3rd m70. Paul Cleasby roared home 3rd New Marske man in a new PB. Many thanks to our organisers along with the many marshalls and helpers who put the effort in to put on great race.
