The Crew was on fire today (just like the weather), with an incredible start by our lead-off hitters that showcased a big weekend of racing. What’s more, it showed great signs for those racing tomorrow at Gold Coast, NSW Short Course XC and Geraldton.

Matthew Hudson was second in 29:49, and just pipped at the post by Tim Lefrooy in what has been a great rivalry the last couple of seasons—let’s do it again soon!

Anna Fitzgerald was ninth in 35:50, smashing her PB by a whopping 40sec. That’s a few years hard work and continual progress for this resilient and dedicated runner. That’s what happens to athletes that never slack off: rewards always come if you train hard and smart. Of course, there’s plenty more improvement still to come for this young lady.

There was another PB, too, for Linda J Strutt (55:02). Somehow she keeps improving despite a very difficult build up.

Congrats to you all. You bewdy Crew!
