WRATS Pub-to-pub 30km
W.R.A.T.S. PUB TO PUB 30 KMS RUN, 23.1.11. Tony Woolford and Andrew Rowlings kept each other from experiencing the loneliness of the long distance runner as they ran side by side for much of the 30kms between the Golden Dog , Glenreagh, and the Amble Inn, Corindi, on Sunday. They ended up less than a minute apart with Woolford taking line honours in 2.07.07 followed in by Rowlings in 2.08.01. Trailing them closely was the winner of the Heartbreak Half-marathon , Jason Smit who completed the journey in 2.12.02.
First lady , Melissa Bulloch, was next to reach the Amble Inn in 2.12.15 which was within 4 minutes of her own course record. Out of all the women who have run the Pub to Pub only she has ever run faster. Lyn Fulton and Tina Thompson were closer to each other in second and third than they were to the winner, recording 2.49.12 and 2.51.20 respectively.
Perhaps the happiest of the dozen finishers was Tina Benoit who recorded a twenty six minute personal best reaching the finish in 4.11.15. The next W.R.A.T.S. event is the Hiawatha Half-Ironman Triathlon at Wooli on Sunday 20th March.
