The Spring Beach Classic will not be

conducted in 2017

 

Sensational day for our Snap / TJM Spring Beach Race with near perfect Spring conditions down at Wanda Beach. Click here to check out the article in The Leader.

This year saw a new category with the introduction of the 2k run event which attracted some very elite runners including our very own Mel Campbell and Chloe Gentle who placed 1st and 2nd respectively with Wanda's Emily Rohr placing 3rd.  Both Mel and Chloe have just recently returned from the Rescue 2016 World Champions held in Noordwyck in Holland where Mel won Gold in the Open's and Masters 2K and Chloe won Gold in the U15 2K race.   

In the Men's division Ali Najem took out 1st place in the 2K ( Ali has also just returned from the World Championships where he won Silver in the Open Men's ) and Lachlan  Crawford  ( Wanda ) and new Wanda recruit David Jones came 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Inspired by watching both his parents ( Mel and Jock ) win Gold at the World Championships Luca Campbell participated in his first 2K race where he won the Under 14 Age category !  Definitely following in his parents footsteps.  We also had the King Family competing together  ( Russell, Sophie, Hugo and Sam ) with Russell and Sophie winning the over Over 40 category and Hugo winning the U19 age group.  Great event for families to participate together.

The 2K race was basically a soft sand race whereas the 8K race was a mixture of soft and hard sand racing.  Winners of the 8K race were as follows:

Male 8K
1st Rory Darkins ( Wanda )
2nd Michael Hirher
3rd David Wood

Female 8K
1st Audrey Amiya-Hall
2nd Nicole Wilding
3rd Magda Karimali

Great to see some of our sponsors participating in the events including George Gourlas and Andrew Valacas from Crust Cronulla and David Woods of TJM Southside.  We thank them for their continued support of this race along side Snap Caringbah and Brooks.

The event was compared by Wanda member Jock Campbell of Jock Athletic.
