NORTH COAST ROAD RUNNING CHAMPIONSHIPS, 29.6.08.

Neil Vaughan and Solveig Litchfield proved too good for their opposition in the North Coast 15 kilometres Road Running Championship at Corindi on Sunday. An old hand on this course and a former winner Vaughan was never troubled as he scooted away from the field to post a 3minutes 42 seconds victory margin over a fast finishing Greg Robson.

Although Litchfield was new to the course between Corindi and Red Rock she still managed to cover it 4 minutes and 50 seconds faster than runner-up Michelle Randall. Third placegetters, Phil Benoit and Tina Thompson, had their usual strong runs although Thompson has been hampered by injury recently.

In the 5 kms 15 years old Wade O’Malley and his twelve years old ‘shadow’ James Franklin made the most of the ideal running conditions to post times of 17.51 and 19.33 respectively. Third in the males went to another promising teenager Matthew Berrington in 20.28.

Heather Kitching crossed the finish first for the females but the Age Group honours went to Michelle Pearson from Zoe Burgess and Sarah Walker. Walker crossed the line in a pack sprint with three others, Lilli Smyth, Jessie Gentle and Carla Westwood. One second covered all four. The 2 kms saw O’Malley back up to claim line honours ahead of veteran Jim McCullagh but Age Group spoils were claimed by Kye Duncan ahead of Daniel Campbell and Liam Morrison. All three boys ran under 8 minutes. The girls event was taken out in fine style by Tenielle Stubbs with second and third Age Groupers being Phoebe O’Meara and Jayde Hill. The sixty strong field was by far the biggest for the 2 kms since the event’s inception.

With over 100 runners and some great age group performances right through the fields the organisers from the Woolgoolga Athletic Club were well pleased with the day’s outcome. They were especially appreciative of the co-operation of the the management of the Amble Inn and the assistance on the course of the Corindi Public School P & C.
