2013 Maryborough Gift
Wrap Up – Part 1 Distance
Maryborough 1/1/2013 (distance events)

Treble Jewellers 800m Open Handicap
With only two heats of the open 800 metres it was always going to be hard to gauge which was the better form guide for the final. Tom Kelly (76m) ran a very impressive 1.53.6 in the first heat when he accounted for Lonain Burnett (58m) and David Haigh (56m). In the second heat Tom’s training mate Adrian Phelan (68m) had a narrow win over the Ararat 1600 metres winner John Glasson (62m) and another training mate Jonathon Woodman (78m) in 1.56.6. In the final quickly worked into a steady tempo in the lead and came to the home turn with a handy lead before Burnett produced a quick burst in the home straight to run the leader down in the last few metres. The time was a very commendable 1.51.6. Jonathon Glasson battled on for a solid third just ahead of Neil Brennan (40m) and David Haigh (56m). Lonain is coached in Bendigo by John Knott and is the brother Kirrily Burnett, a winner of many women’s events on the VAL scene.

Wattle Office Supplies Women’s and Veterans’ 1600mts
The women’s and veterans’ 1600 metres was a clear victory to Martine Beer (315m) from Kerrieanne Hocking (385m) and Arron Downes (80m) in 4.24.7. Martine settled in fourth place behind the early leaders Rob Kensole (395m), Hocking and Doug Gittens (360m), gradually making ground to hit the lead at the 200 metres and held on comfortably in the home straight. Kerrieanne stuck to her task but was just unable to quicken over the concluding stages. Arron Downes, a recent place getter at Bay Sheffield, did a terrific job to come from the eighty metre mark to run third. Martine was a recent winner over 550 metres at the Bay Sheffield carnival. Martine is also the mother of Jack Beer who was that little kid on the skate board on the concourse outside the Pier Plaza at the Bay Sheffield. If you were one of that many that was skittled by Jack there is a class action being mounted to seek damages.

Harvey World Travel Backmarkers 1600mts
Over recent years the Maryborough 1600 metres has been dominated by the Bendigo trained
runners and this year’s race was no exception. Brady Threlfall, Cody Williamson and Josh Nolan
have all dominated the event recently. This year Michael Preece (100m), at only his second VAL
run, made the race a procession with a clear win in 4.09.4. Preece wearing the blue singlet
quickly left the other colours behind and hit the lead at the bell and won as he liked. David
Spence (125m) was best of the rest and Matthew Sandilands (180m) battled on well at his first
start since Easter. The recent honour board of Maryborough winners implies that Michael
Preece is a distance runner of the future.
The distance series points award is in full swing with Stefan Catalano gaining more points at
Ararat and Maryborough to hold a slender lead from Alex Bacalja , Martine Beer and Andrew
Soltys. Gary Blake is mixing distances but is still in sight of the leaders.
