1 400 Over 35s at Camden on Wed Feb 06, 2013 11:23 am

Red leg


As a result of a previous post referring to “Big” Bill Dickenson’s win in 1997, this found its way to the mailbag.

The first Camden Over 35s under the auspices of the SAAL was conducted in 1993 – events prior to this were under the “Masters” banner (as remembered). Indeed the last race in 1992 was an 800m & was renowned at the time for the win of Dave Oppermann. Dave was off 380m that day & shuffled his way around Henley Oval in 1min 49 to beat the “good doctor” Bob Lange (3rd running from scratch). Post-race “old” Dave proceeded to receive kisses from all the young ladies on a victory parade where he probably covered more distance than the race.

As referred to before the names here are a veritable “who’s who” of SAAL running. The data is missing the 1999 & 2000 results – hopefully someone can fill in the gaps.

At the moment, multiple winners that can be identified are Brian Witty (he does love Camden!) & Debbie Roberts (now Di Vizio & the only back-to-back winner). Brian Witty & Frank McHugh have the “Classic-Over 35” double to themselves. Given the Over 35 race is more often won by a middle to front marker it looks like they will have this honour to themselves for some time to come.

The first winner was Gary Thompson, who shares with Greg Dorey (1995) & Mark Beveridge (2007) the honour of being the backmarkers in this list. Of the placegetters with a published time it looks like Beveridge has the best RPMs - .134 m/sec in 2002 when 3rd (from 22) & .1362 m/sec in winning in 2007 (from 24). But Frank’s performance from “scratch” in 1994 to finish 3rd probably has the best “RPM” – it must have been a barnstorming finish.

Finally something for conjecture – toughest competitor on this list, and there are a few … Neil MacDonald as a discussion starter. When Neil came to town & the teeth were packed in the bag, you knew you were in for a challenging day.
