The third and final EndurO was held on Loughnans Link, starting at Schwerkolt Cottage, and heading into Ringwood North and Mitcham, via Yarran Dheran and the Eastlink trail. A very tough course thanks to the hills, and plenty to think about. The high points were gettable, making the lower points important if you wanted to edge out the competition by 10 or 20 points – great job by course setter Phil Torode.
Congratulations to our winners: Steven scored 900 points to claim victory on the 120 min Run course, just 10 points clear of Bruce. Ian scored 870 points to take third, only 10 points ahead of Rick. Emma was the fastest female, on 820 points, a great effort.
Scores were also very close on the 120 min Walk, with Merv the winner on 690 points, a whisker ahead of Ros on 680 and Mike on 660. Peter G scored 640, just 10 points in front of Ron on 630.
While the winner on the 90 min Run had an easy victory, it was very tight for the placings. Tim scored 750 points, ahead of Peter M and Steve L, both on 690 points. Stephen C scored 670, and Peter C was just behind on 650. Fastest female was yours truly, with 540 points.
The 90 min Walk was taken out by Dennis with 530 points in another close result; Graham was second with 500, then Pete on 480. Lyn and Geoff each scored 460.
Cake-O resumes on Saturday August 26 at Springthorpe.
