UPDATED: If you’ve just tuned in. It’s been high drama in both races. The big news is that Bogong to Hotham was cancelled at the halfway point due to adverse weather. Race director Andy Hewat made the big but totally correct call to cancel at Langfords after 144km per hour gusts were being recorded at the top of Mount Hotham. Coupled with hail and extreme winds and rain. The decision in the end was an easy one to make to ensure runner safety.
At the Narrabeen Allnighter, Central Coast athlete Darren McClellan continued where he left off from last year with a great win over Jo Blake. The two guys were running head to head for most of the first few hours before Darren pulled away. Margaret Chu took out the ladies win. More details and full report follow very soon. Provisional results for the top three at Narrabeen are as follows:
1. Darren McClellan 130.051 kms
2. Jo Blake 124.632
3. Mal Gamble 122.355
1. Margaret Chu 103.630 kms
2. Ann Owen 99.157
3. Karen Chan 96.592
