The Free Press (Corowa) - - NEWS -

Un­der per­fect sunny skies, the Ruther­glen Mus­cat Run was run on the Sun­day of the Win­ery Walk­a­bout week­end.

The event at­tracted 143 run­ners, who were sent on their way by starters Phil Rogers and Ted Shanks. Matt Rob­bie was eas­ily the first male home in the ten kilome­tre event in an ex­cel­lent time of 37.06, and in a spe­cial fin­ish for their first wed­ding an­niver­sary, his wife, Amanda, in a new record time of 40.32 was the first fe­male.

Vet­eran male and fe­male were taken out by David Jef­feries (47.51) and Tanya Buck­ing­ham (46.32) re­spec­tively.

The Su­per Vets weren’t left be­hind ei­ther, with John Back­house (42.33) and Melinda Grigg (48.46) de­fy­ing their age.

Liam New­land was the first male home in the three kilome­tre event in 12.16, and Mon­ica Cowen took home the prize for first fe­male in a time of 13.49.

Tess Palu­biski blitzed the Un­der 16 fe­male field to set a new record time of 11.57.

Tess has won this event for the past five years, im­prov­ing her time each year.

Lu­cas Blad­well led the Un­der 16 boys in 11.21.

Nathan O’Mal­ley had a great day out, be­ing the first lo­cal home and also tak­ing out the best dressed, along with Brett Chan­dler in their sumo suits.

He re­ceived two bot­tles of mus­cat and a cheque for his en­deav­ours.

All win­ners over 18 picked up a nice bot­tle of Camp­bells Mus­cat and we are grate­ful to the Ruther­glen Mus­cat Group for their sup­port of this event.
