Possibly the most beautiful Moonlight Madness race of the calendar

Last Updated: Friday, 06 July 2012 15:44

It was definitely worth turning up early at last Wednesday's Moonlight Madness in Cremorne. Early runners getting ready for their twilight sortie were treated to the evening illumination of the city, with ferries scuttling across the twinkling harbour towards our beautiful Opera House.  Once darkness fell and the race began there were more views to be had, including the eerily flashing green lighthouse at the end of the point.

There was a sizeable turnout for the event with nearly seventy  runners setting out, both individually and in groups, surprising the homecoming commuters walking up from the ferry point at Cremorne.  Planner Carolyn Haupt had set an enjoyable course where there were plenty of points for all, not just those with long legs and too much energy.  Average score on the course was 420.   Richard Green scooped up all the points in 42:40 with Glenn Horrocks and Steve Ryan in second and third places respectively.
