Goode Strides to Victory

Ben Goode has taken out the win for race 6 of the Bendigo Athletic Club.

Goode started the race with the pressure of being one of the race favourites, but composed himself to run a great race and win the Purtill’s Nursery sponsored 8km in a time of 30:06.

Goode defeated his closest rival, John Bailey by more than 30 seconds to win Sunday's race.

John Bailey was runner up in the Huntly 8km with Adam Parker running on to finish in 3rd.

Georgia Blitzes the Field!

Georgia White ran an excellent race today in the Juniors 1km to beat her closest rival, Harper-Lee Basten by nearly a minute.

Georgia now has bragging rights over her sister Freya, and can boast all she wants about her success.

Meanwhile Harper-Lee is getting evermore closer to achieving a win after getting two 2nd’s and a 3rd this season and is likely to get a win in the next race or two.  Hang in there Harper-Lee!

Professional Running Great Holds Off The Competition

Long-time Bendigo athletic club runner, Rod Stewart has taken out race 4 of the BAC. The race was hard fought with 500m to go as Greg Hilson made an attempt to take the lead, however Stewart made a gutsy last minute dash to hold off Hilson and win the Phil Noden sponsored 6.5km event. It was a great run by the seasoned veteran who managed to improve on his last 6.5km time by an impressive 44 seconds.
