BBQ Stakes

Posted by speedygeoff on Thursday, May 17, 2007 with 4 comments
One of the popular lunchtime runs is the BBQ Stakes, an undulating 6k run every Wednesday lunchtime, starting and finishing at Woden town centre.

It has the best handicap system I have encountered. (Although you cannot eliminate “burglars” altogether; one of the very well known burglars in Vets runs it regularly.)

It runs in reverse on the first Wednesday of the month (see profile below), which is also Team Challenge day, and the normal (clockwise) direction on other Wednesdays.


Course profile. Reverse is my favourite direction, although some runners feel it is harder that way.

The BBQ Stakes website is at http://www.lunchstakes.webathletics.com.au/bbqstakes/about.htm

Some of the geese are regulars, including myself. For the record, this year’s results include:

  1. I guess that I'm just too slow to be a speedy goose these days :(

    (I would like to remind you that I do have a decent PB of 25:21 on the course though!)

  2. I've done 2 or 3, none of them fast. I think Geoff Barker has too, and so has the PRB.

  3. I have only just (today) added Bob, Carol and Roger to the BBQ results list, I WILL get to you don't worry, just a bit of work, I can't do it all at once, it takes a while you know.

  4. About 6 or 9 for me over the years. Can't remember the times or when they were run. Probably snail-like anyway.
