ninth Island

The 2017 Ninth Island 10k Feature race was won today by club course setter, Scott Jones! The race was a photo finish with just the computer deciding that Scott crossed the line by the smallest of margins from Ricky Markham. Last weeks winner Jozina Goedhart ran a great race into 3rd place. Todays sponsor provided all runners with a bottle of Ninth Island wine – everyone was a winner today! The fastest male today was Matthew Zegveld in a time of 37.32 and the fastest female was Paige Wierenga in a time of 45.10.

Today was also the feature race for the juniors – we had the races, facepainting and presentations, lots of fun!
