Congratulations to Michael Hobbs, who won the 2020 Deakin 10 by beating his handicap by 4.22. Mark Penfold was a close runner up with 4.01, followed by Amelia Brown (1.47) who recorded the fastest time by over 2 minutes over second fastest James Tombs.
There were some good runs all round - six runners beat their handicap on a fine but blustery morning. Trevor Montague had sore legs from the track 3,000m but got going with a faster second circuit, while Walter Hill had a 135 miles bike ride in his legs and still managed 8 minute miles.
Dave Freeman stopped at 5 miles - bad luck Dave, but rest assured that your distance running is far better than my attempts to throw heavy weights!
Guest runner Matt Pont was first to finish - blame the handicapper's ignorance of Matt's real form for the comfortable margin of his win! Well done everyone, and thanks for observing social distance.
