Run­ners out in force at Ned Kelly Chase

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Front Page - By CAM POT­TER

ALL re­sults are still sub­ject to rat­i­fi­ca­tion, but the 2018 Ned Kelly Chase re­sults are some of the best in years.

Not only did the event have over 250 more fin­ish­ers than last year, some records and some ma­jor announcements have come out of Sun­day’s race.

In 2019 the Ned Kelly Chase will host the Aus­tralian Ul­tra Run­ners As­so­ci­a­tion cham­pi­onships in what will be a mas­sive boost to the town.

“It’s great; Sharon and I work so hard to de­liver a great event and to pip events in Syd­ney, the Gold Coast and in Perth for the right to host is a great re­sult for us and the town,” Ned Kelly Chase or­gan­iser Justin Scholz said.

“We are so grate­ful for the sup­port that we re­ceive from our friends, fam­ily and vol­un­teers; this is a re­ward for all our ef­fort.”

In other news from Sun­day, with re­sults still sub­ject to con­fir­ma­tion, a new world record in the 55 and over age group has been recorded and a 100 kilo­me­tre ul­tra run­ner broke the eight hour mark in a fan­tas­tic run.

FIN­ISH LINE: Wan­garatta’s Marc Sealey crosses the fin­ish line of the marathon event.
