ONE TO WATCH

The Riverine Herald - - SWEAT VS STEAM - 20TH ANNIVERSAY RACE SUNDAY OCTOB -

SEVEN-TIME con­sec­u­tive win­ner Brady Threlfall will be back to take on an­other Echu­caMoama Sweat ver­sus Steam Fun Run in 2017.

The marathon mar­vel will be dif­fi­cult to beat hav­ing fin­ished as out­right win­ner of the 12.5 km run against PS Ade­laide in 2015 in un­der 41 min­utes.

The fastest time from the 12 km run in 2016 was 44 min­utes and 26 sec­onds, and sur­pris­ingly it wasn’t recorded by Threlfall — he missed the event while trav­el­ling around Europe af­ter run­ning his first Ber­lin marathon.

In­stead Bendigo’s An­drew Creer was the he out­right win­ner and said he would be look­ing to run it again, but would need a lot quicker time if he’s to chal­lenge Threlfall for the win.

Al­though this year’s run could see Threlfall ll po­ten­tially a lit­tle slow off the mark, con­sid­er­ing ng he would have just com­pleted his sec­ond Ber­lin in marathon on Septem­ber 24.

The 2016 out­right win­ner of the 5 km run,n Tarli Bird, will not be run­ning this year, open­ing the doors for a new con­tender in the shorter course.
