Running and walking in the rain (7/11/2019)

The wettest night of the year saw fine performances. Oscar Vall, new to East Burwood, showed real sprinting speed in the 60 and 100 metres. Geoff Wheeler won the 3000 metres and was also fastest on an age-graded basis. The classiest field was in the 1000 metres walk won by Kevin Cassidy. Kevin who holds Victorian and Australian titles in race walking was not deterred by the weather as he also has ‘Triple Crown of Open Water Swimming’  a marathon challenge including the English channel and circumnavigating Manhattan Island.
