Movember Gift Friday 19th Novmeber 2010
The Victorian Athletic League running ventured out to Essendon for a night event
at the Aberfeldie Athletics track. Conditions were mild with a breeze going across
the track and as the sun went down conditions became very cold. However, the
event was a huge success with high quality running. The VAL would like to thank
the Hippo Club Committee for organising a great event for a good cause.
The summary of each event is listed below.

100m Open
The 100m Open event, although small in prizemoney saw a very competitive
final. The Rob Lehmann trained, Nathan Fox took out the honours in very
impressive fashion, running a winning time of 10.53. Second place went to the
self trained Peter Walsh, who now is training a handy group of runners himself
down at Geelong, and third place was taken out by Shane Ezard who has had a
consistent season so far.

100m Women's
The 100m Women's event was taken out by the Steve Gaffney trained local
runner Tamara Hammond. Tamara was having her first run of the season and
stormed home to take the victory in a winning time of 12.22. Second was another
local runner Steph Mollica, she ran a good race from her backmark and hanging
on for third was Patricia Fox.

300m Open
The 300m Open was an intriguing affair and a classy field was assembled.
Commonwealth games representative Arron Rouge-Serret was the backmarker of
the field and all eyes were upon him in the final. Coming around the turn the field
started to bunch with Arron coming 5 and 6 lanes wide attempting to round up
the field, but with 50m to go Cam Dunbar hit the lead and managed to hold off
the fast finishing Rouge-Serret who ran an incredible race from his scratchmark.
Holding on for third position was David Tinney.
The winning time for the 300m Open was 33.83.

300m Veterans
The 300m Veterans Open was a very close race. With 50m to go Matthew Boyes
loomed up to Chris Livitsanos and did look like the winner, however the Len
Templar trained Ballarat bulldog, fort off all challengers and went on to take the
victory. Matthew Boyes race a game second and a win will not be far away. Also
making up ground from the back to snatch third was Clayton Fraser.
The winner's time for the 300m Veterans was 36.48.

300m Women's
The 300m Women's was a great race with a fantastic finish. 5 girls went over the
line with .04 of sec difference between 1st and 5th. The eventual winner was the
backmarker, the Mark Hipworth trained Steph Mollica who just got there on the
line. The following runners were close up and ran excellent races, Laura Jane
Hilditch, Tamara Hammond, Kendra Hubbard and Eleni Gilden.

550m Classic
The 550m Classic, was just that. The field was full of quality with a good spread
of runners from backmarks and frontmarks. You could have made a winning case
for every runner in the field. The race pace was set up by frontmarker Wayne
Dalziel, coming around the home turn Wayne kicked on field and looked the likely
winner, however flying down the outside of the track was the John Henry trained
Shaun Hargreaves who hit the lead with about 30 or 40 metres to run. Shaun
managed to hold off the rest of the field in a sensational performance. Close up
second was Freddy Ovett, who was having his first start with the VAL and looks
and up and coming runner. Just behind Freddy was AFL boundary umpire Adam
Coote who also ran on well late to gain the third position. Simon Fitzpatrick was
also a great run from his backmark and he was not far away in 4th position.

1600m Novice
The 1600m Novice was another great race with a number of new and up and
coming athletes making their debuts. With a lap to go it was Lauren Crowe who
was making ever post a winner with Greg Hilson tracking up behind her. But it
was Paul Munro who made a long sustaining run around the field to just hang on
for victory off his 120m mark. Greg Hilson ran a mighty race for second, a win is
not far away for the Bendigo runner. Lauren Crowe is also racing very well and
she managed to hang on for a podium finish.
The winning time for the event was 4.10.10

3200m Open
The 3200m event was the highlight of the night for most people who were
present at the meeting. Backmarkers Matthew McDonough and Brady Threlfal
came together with approximately 3 laps to go and looked like they would fight
out the race to the finish line. However, with approximately 450m to go Brady
Threlfal who was running off the backmark of 20m sprinted past Matthew
McDonough who is a classy runner and has been in some good form. It looked as
though Brady may have taken off to soon but the crowd were amazed when he
spread eagled the field and went on for an amazing victory winning by
approximately 50 metres. Brady ran a time of 9.07. Matthew McDonough ran a
bottler of race to finish second while Josh Nolan finished off well to run into third.

Our next event is the Terang Gift on Sunday 28th November.
