Runners out in force at Ned Kelly Chase
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.
Full results report in Wednesday’s Chronicle.
