I thought the sunny days would never end

It’s time to make a stand
800m
This year’s “Higgins” race, due to the shemozzle at the start, has no reliable times unless you timed yourself. The “Official” results are below, in order across the line. My best guess is that most times, but not all, will be between 2 and 6 seconds faster than indicated.
2 Geoff Sims M60 2:28
4 Mick Horan M45 2:19
5 Kevin Chamberlain M60 2:32
8 Tony Booth M70 2:53
9 Rod Lynch M45 2:28
10 Gary Bowen M50 2:33
14 Kathy Sims W55 3:02
15 Katie Forestier W40 2:51
17 Amanda Walker W40 2:55
21 Helen Larmour W45 3:02
25 Rachelle Ellis-Brownlee W35 3:03
27 Roger Pilkington M45 3:05
31 Neil Boden M55 3:17
32 Bronwyn Calver W35 3:10
36 Geoff Barker M60 4:03
The Higgins is capable of being run properly by the right person. I may volunteer to do it and the other two Pennington events in future if such a person is not available and if I am not racing.
By the way, the start group times, I think, are still flawed, despite being altered a few years back, but I suspect any move to bring attention to that fact would be unsuccessful.

  1. I checked with the master of stats - 3 secs for some according to her blog.

    Is Amanda's black 'r' there to match her hair?

    I still like the '71 hairy version... winter spring summer or autumn, I'll come running to see you again :)
