What a line up for Illawarrah at Kurnell!

Last Updated: Friday, 06 July 2012 15:44

An IKON club event record! Over thirty runners turned up for IKN's recent club event at Kurnell and were rewarded for their trip with perfect running weather, beautiful scenery and a thoroughly enjoyable course.  Organiser Ian Froude used the format similar to that used by Victorian clubs for street events where the map had 19 controls on it and the competitor chose to do any 10, 14 or 17 of these depending on the distance they wanted to run. Control sites were questions relating to permanent features with a choice of three answers on the clue sheet.

Each course was very competitive with seconds separating the runners. The Long course, which was approximately 6km long depending on route choice, was won by Ian Jones a good margin ahead of the rest of the field.  Competition was tight further down the rankings with less than two minutes separating 6th place from 9th.  This was also the case in the Medium, won by Georgia Jones, where the race was even closer with Sue Froude getting her 6th place only 45 seconds quicker than Salme Fuller whose 46:30 placed her 9th.  The Jones family took the final placing in the Short with Sophie Jones winning ahead of Greg Robinson and Eunice Wilson who were close behind. 

Thanks to Ian Froude for his help with this report.  The IKON results will be available here
