icypole selectionSaturday 14th December 2019

Due to the hot conditions the Maylands Metro Series event was modified to be non competitive. Course lengths were also reduced and there was no mass start or official timing. A small group of 25 ventured out into the hot westerly wind, some even ran. Icy poles and watermelon were provided for refreshment at the finish, which was very well received.

This event was set by junior state team rep Riley Mcfarlane, who put out some controls, then did a 100m relay final at State Athletics, before returning to assist with admin. Sharon and Lily Mcfarlane also put out controls and managed the admin. Thank you to the McFarlane family for your efforts particularly on such a hot day.

Event Report: Bassendean MetrO Series Event 6

Saturday 7th December 2019


MetrO Series no. 6 for 2019/20 was held at Bassendean, with a pleasant cool change after a very hot week, and even a couple of showers earlier in the afternoon. The course included a new area to the North, with compulsory crossing points for Guildford Road and the Midland Rail line, and took in Success Hill Reserve and parts of historic Bassendean town centre.

Ken Brownlie won the Short course from Amy Dufty, albeit with a sub-optimal route, while Nick Dale just pipped Liam Dufty in a sprint finish for the Medium course, with Nick’s route being one of the two shortest possible. Monika Swierk was the fastest woman on Medium.
