McDonald 5K Handicap

Results from the EAC McDonald 5k handicap and I’m pleased to confirm that Malcolm Fraser has been crowned the champ, picking off the competitors one by one over 3 gutsy laps around the Meadows.

As well as Malcolm, special congrats also go to guest runner Monica Lara who just kept in front to finish first over the line and Myles Bax and Isla Scott-Pearce who recorded the fastest male and female times on the day.

Thanks as always to everyone on the volunteer who helped make the event happen – pointing the runners in the right direction, keeping the course clear and supply an ample supply of carbs for everyone to refuel on afterwards.

Good luck to everyone for the upcoming Cross Country season.
