    Botany Bolt Race Report

    Harry Summers - Open male winner

    Harry Summers (Randwick Botany Harriers) and Lauren Parsons (Sutherland) claimed victories at 3rd Botany Bolt. Harry thus became reigning Botany Bolt champion. Unlike last year when he ran strong from the start, this year Harry started conservatively which was unusual to see. But he took the lead before the end of first 2k lap and then slightly missed the course. This set him back to 3rd place. Not long after that he went to the front again and never looked back.








    Lauren Parsons - Open female winner

    Lauren Parsons (pictured left) had little bit more work to do as young Ruby Hackett (UTN Norths) kept the challenge coming into third lap. Lauren was stronger in the end finishing 13 seconds ahead of Ruby.

    U18 boys race was very exciting to watch with Zac Rea, Nathan Derriman, James King and Mark Kriedmann all running strong. Zac was leading all the way and just looked too strong for other boys. We have to remember that other boys are slightly younger (including Morgan McDonnald). In the end they didn't give much; Zac won 5 seconds ahead of Nathan Derriman with James King another 8 seconds behind.

    U18 girls race was dominated by 15 years old Amity Delaney who clocked 15:55 on moderately challenging course. Samantha King (12 years old) was second in very good 16:18.

    In 2k event for U12s, runners started two minutes behind main race. Young Ellen Kriedman (pictured below) was leading from gun to tape ahead of Matthew Gerrard.


    The weather was glorious, sunny and 11 deg, there was hardly any mud on the course, perfect day for running.

    We hope to see you all next year!
