RUN­NING

AN IN­CRED­I­BLE race from 14-year-old Whit­sun­days res­i­dent Lloyd Clode-Roberts helped him claim an im­pres­sive vic­tory in the King of the Moun­tain footrace.

Lloyd’s time of just 32 min­utes and 41 sec­onds for the gru­elling 6.5km hilly course was in­cred­i­ble and saw him beat off ex­pe­ri­enced com­peti­tors, some more than dou­ble his age.

Queen of the Moun­tain was Lyn­nen Birch with a great time of 38 min­utes and 42 sec­onds.

Ju­niors bat­tled it out in a 5km race and the ju­nior Queen of the Moun­tain went to Grace Booker in a time of 20 min­utes 13 sec­onds, ahead of Kay­lah Carter in 22:40.

The Ju­nior King of the Moun­tain was Hamil­ton Is­land lo­cal Ry­der Harvey who posted a time of 13.55, just ahead of run­ner-up An­gus Men­zies in 14:04.

NEW KING: Lloyd ClodeRoberts (pic­tured here at his school awards night) took out the adult cat­e­gory of the King of the Moun­tain Race on Hamil­ton Is­land on the week.
