Wattie and Sonja win 2016 Championship opener

Sunday, March 6, 2016

The opening race of the 2016 championship series was won by Wattie Mackay in a fine time of 18:07, picking up where he left off at the end of last season. Behind Wattie, the table is tightly packed.

For the women, new club member Sonja McFadden was first home in 23:35, with Nicola Watson second in 23:54 and Rachel 25:07. Lauren ran well to take nearly four minutes off her time at the same race last year. Despite Sonja's win, the age-weighting of the points system puts Nic very slightly ahead on points.
