Mt Majura Vineyard Two Peaks Classic

Mt Majura Vineyard Two Peaks Classic

26km - Mt Majura and Mt Ainslie, ACT - Saturday 5 November

World long distance mountain running champion Emma Murray slashed 6 minutes from her own race record in winning today's Mt Majura Vineyard Two Peaks Classic. Murray clocked 1hr 53mins12 secs for the gruelling 26km course over Mt Ainslie and Mt Majura and finished 5th outright. Only two weeks earlier she slashed several minutes off the race record for the 54km Brindabella Classic, and was second outright to 2005 Australian 100km rep Jonathon Blake. Her record was outstanding because the course is now an out and back run to the top of the Brindabella range and back, in contrast to the previouscourse which startedat the top and was predominantly downhill.

World rogaining champion Julie Quinn was second in the Two Peaks 2:12:08, just 10 seconds of Symeko Jochinke. World duathlon championship representative Vicki Godfrey was 4th in 2:18:52 and former Australian orienteering representative Julia Minty 5th in 2:21:47, highlighting the quality of the field.

The men's race was won by two time Australian mountain running representative John Winsbury who clocked 1:42:42, two minutes outside his race record, only 4 days after he took out the Victorian Alpine Four Peaks. Vince Craig was 2nd in 1:46:54 and Adrian Sheppard third in 1:50:06. Previous winner and former record holder Trevor Jacobs was fastest veteran in finishing 4th in 1:51:21.

Former Australian mountain running champion Judith May made a pleasing comeback to running after three years in road cycling when she was fastest female in the One Peak 15kms in 73:19. Carinna Tong was 2nd in 78:00 and Allison Sargeant 3rd in 82:50. W60 Caroline Campbell had a brilliant run, finishing 7th in 90:25.

Former English orienteering international Stewart Fishwick had a comfortable victory in the men's One Peak in 62:33, with Robert Ginnivan 2nd in 67:24 and Mark Guilfoyle 3rd in 68:18.

The move of the race start from Watson to the Mt Majura Vineyard was a great success, with a large increase in the field and the Pinot Noir very popular with finishers. Vineyard owner Frank Van de Loo, a former orienteer, not only hosted the race but spent a great deal of time mowing grass strips through long grass sections and mowing an area for car parking, as well as personally handing a bottle of wine to each finisher and presenting the awards to the winners.
