Fidelity 2011: Scores pound the tarmac

Action in the Fidelity 2011 Fun Run Series took on a new look as participation increased to a total of 181 individuals, plus prams and pets.

More than 50 newcomers actually lined up for the start of the second race on Walkers Road.

Many performance times were lowered from the previous week’s results. Nevertheless that did not hold true in all cases.

The first four finishers completed the course in exactly the same order as they had in week one. Marius Acker eased up somewhat, but still was a comfortable victor in 11:11.

Conrad Proud took runner-up honours with a consistent 11:19.

Carl Grant finished with a mark of 11:29 and Tristan von Kirchenheim at 11:37 improved a bit. Chadwick Webster took fifth place in 11:38.

For the ladies, in the absence of first week winner Beth Schreader, Tracey

Walker captured first place in 13:07 with Lauretta Bennett second at 13:20.

Rounding out the ladies top five were Emma Byrnes (13:32), Mario Pandohie (13:42) and Pam Abbott (13:50).

Russell Coleman did not match his scorching pace of week one in the pram division, as Nchane Jere took top honours.

Shaun Green repeated his win in the pet division.

Going into the home stretch, after the first two outings, overall top finishers in the men’s category have followed the same path each week. The ladies category is much more questionable with Tracey Walker and Lauretta Bennett engaged in a struggle for top honours.


Leaders after two weeks:

  • Under 12-Katriona Williams/Reese Hoeksema
  • Age 12-14—Ashley McLean-Tiffany Cole (tie)/Brandon Williams
  • Age 15-19—Sheyla Torres/Tristan von Kirchenheim
  • Age 20-29—Emma Byrnes/Carl Grant
  • Age 30-39—Tracey Walker-Lauretta Bennett (tie)/Conrad Proud
  • Age 40-49—Maria Leonce/Marius Acker
  • Age 50-59—Vance Golding-South/Chris Sutton
  • Age 60+—–Ann Elliott/Roger Daavies
  • Pram—Nchane Jere & Russell Coleman (tie)
  • Pet —–Shaun Green

With three ties to be broken and close battles in several areas an exciting finale is anticipated.

There are always one-off entrants who shake up the rankings on the final day, and of course, as the top five overall male and female scorers are prohibited from also scoring in an age group, some surprises are possible in several divisions.

Everyone is invited to come out for the fun!
