Saturday 5th December
Cottesloe proved to be a superb setting for this week’s Metro event with controls within the main suburb and in various nooks and crannies as well as along the beach front. One control on the groyne ended up being wave drenched due to the brisk wind giving runners a complimentary shower to avoid overheating!
The event commenced at the Civic Centre where an additional mini-sprint map added to the complexity of route planning.
The two controls at the end of sand paths onto the beach aimed at nudging runners into considering a beach run weren’t entirely popular and sensibly slower beach running seemed to be have been generally avoided. It was wonderful to see many newcomers for the run.
First runner in for the day was Duncan Sullivan, with in the male category Ken Brownlie storming in a little while later to be second closely followed by Rohan Braid. Jo Addy’s group came first in the female category then Susan Coleman and Amy Dufty.
