Those who improve their last season's best 10k time are of course in the top group in a handicap run, so with their PRs Janine and Tom were today the impressive winners. Jackie's and Wolfgang's daughter Priska (age 13) ran an excellent time and is only ranked at the bottom due to the fact that she did not have a valid handicap - congratulations ! The club owes one or two Gl�hweins to the brave timers Graeme and Stefan (temperatures around 5 degrees).
13th Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 227)
12th Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 214)
Today's handicap race (also known as the timers' nightmare because the runners all finish approx. at the same time) brought some excellent results:
Matthew broke the 18 years old VIC record of 33:56 run by the legendary Robert SHROPSHIRE by 46 seconds !
The French quartet (Denis, Alain, Vincent & Christophe) and Bernd improved their PRs, Günther and Chris improved their Annual Best to be ranked at the top of the list.
Beate took it easy today to pace Adi (didn't even sweat, she said).
22nd Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 277)
21st Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 271)
20th Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 265)
Before leaving Vienna, Yasunori crowned his VICRunners career with a victory and a PR - congratulations !
Weather conditions were perfect but for some reason only 4 participants managed to stay under the handicap.
19th Donaupark Handicap Run (10k No. 259)
Victory for Manuel due to an improvement of his PR by more than 4 minutes.
Fastest runner: Paul McGinnity, but his handicap was too high to be ranked better.
Norbie managed to start and time this run without any assistance. His handicap: the broken printer of our timing machine.
