Club News : Creekers win ACT Mountain Running Championships
Posted by rohan on 2014/4/7 21:26:50 (28 reads)

Weston Creek Athletic Club Secretary and elite runner Alan Craigie took out the ACT Mountain Running Championships at Mt Tennent on Saturday in a very impressive time of 55:06 for the tough 11km up hill course. Craigie's winning time has moved in second all time of the Mt Tennent 11km, just behind NCG Scott McTaggart's 54:40 time clockec in 2010.

2013 Australian junior mountain runner and Weston Creek athlete Bryce Anderson took out the junior 8km comfortably in 45:15.

Full results are available here: http://www.mountainrunning.coolrunnin ... ws&action=ShowNews&id=425

Both may now look to compete at the Australian Mountain Running Championships on the same course (Mt Tennent) on 11 May 2014.

Well done guys.

Club News : Emily Brichacek wins National 5000m championship
Posted by rohan on 2014/4/7 21:21:16 (18 reads)

On the final day at the Australian Athletics Championships and Commonwealth Games Selection Trails, Weston Creek Athletics Club elite female distance runner Emily Brickacek claimed her first Australian title in the 5000m beating a top field and hopefully booked her ticket to Glasgow (subject to AA selection).

Brichacek won the 5000m selection trial this afternoon in 15:52.65, just ahead of Olympian Eloise Wellings who took second in 15:53.62 with NSW junior super star in the making, Katr Spencer third in 16:01.06.

Full results here: http://athsaus.imgstg.com/uploads/Ath ... onals_2014/140403F032.htm

Last month, Brichacek ran a 5000m Commonwealth Games B qualifier (B qualifier is 15:47.50) at the Sydney Track Classic. Brichacek placed third with a time of 15:31.49 (just outside her personal best time) and only needed to win the Australian Championships and Selection Trials to pretty much book her spot to Glasgow.

Emily, on behalf off the Weston Creek Athletics Club, congratulations and well done. The hard work has paid off.

When selected to the Australian Commonwealth Games team (subject to AA selection process), Emily will join fellow Weston Creek Athletic Club Treasurer and Member, Martin Dent, who has already been automatically selected to compete in the marathon.

Further information

The marathon event is only suitable for experienced runners who have appropriate experience and training to complete the distance (42.2km) on a challenging course at night with minimal support. If you are unsure whether you are suitably fit to attempt the marathon we encourage you to enter as part of a relay team, alternatively you could contact Vince Craig on 0432 832 431 or vince.craig@anu.edu.au to discuss your preparedness for the event.

The course is entirely contained within Stromlo Forest Park Canberra and is off road in that the majority of the course is on fire trails and a significant section of the course is on mountain bike single track trails (not steep). We think this is a great and enjoyable course. The course consists of a loop of ~6km. Relay runners must complete a full lap and can then change over. For example a relay team of two could change over at the end of every 6km lap. A map of the course will be posted a few days before the event.

We will be enforcing a strict cut off time. You MUST finish by midnight. We will be stopping runners heading out on another lap well before midnight if we believe you will not be able to finish before midnight. Please understand that this is necessary for the organisation of the event.

The event will only provide minimum support (think fata$s style + a bit more help). We think this is part of the attraction of the event.

To spell it out:

There may not be any marshals out on the course

The course will be well marked, but you need to be confident in your ability to follow the course markings at night.

You should make sure you have appropriate clothing considering that it could be very cold and may be wet.

You need to be confident in running over trails at night.

Refreshments will be provided at the start/finish area – every 6km.

You MUST carry a torch or a headtorch and we advise that you carry spare batteries. No torch, no start!

Prior to the race all entrants will be notified of arrangements to follow should you become ill or injured out on the course.

Please send this email on to all your running friends!
