The 2013 Max Greive Run has been another successful event for North Coast Tri Club this year. Please find following the race wrap up and results from Eddy Girvan, Race Director.
On behalf of all members and the committee, I would like to thank Eddy for his dedication, commitment and effort to ensure the success of this club event. Congratulations to all place getters and participants!
President, North Coast Tri Club
MAX GREIVE 10km RUN and 5km BOLT
I thank Paul Covich for passing on the following “vale” which was the front page article in the North Coast Telegraph of November 1999
31st January 1945 to 11th October 1999
Max passed away on the 11th of October with his loving wife Vicki by his side. His funeral on Thursday was testimony on how Max had touched so many different people. Young and old they came to pay their respects to a truly great man.
Max was a loving, caring family man and a ferocious competitor. He was a brilliant teacher and his list of Academic and Sporting achievements was long and varied. To most, Max will be remembered for being one of life’s true Gentlemen who gave his time to others. People like Max are rare in this world and you feel better for having known him.
Club members came out to support the Max Greive 10km Run and 5km Bolt on Friday 22nd November. With the weather gods beaming on us, the participants had perfect conditions to go and have a crack at setting fast times.
A big thank you to the support given by members in getting this event to run smoothly. Firstly the fantastic effort from Bar-B-Qers, supplying food for the many runners and supporters. Secondly to the people who manned the water stations. Janine, her children and friends at the MAAC and then at the clubrooms Sophie, Clare, Mikey and the other helpers thankyou very much. Thirdly to Sarah Black alone at the turn around, thankyou, although I believe Erle thanked you in his own special way, albeit sweaty way. Forthly to Steve for recording the results. Finally to those who helped clean up at the end thankyou. If I have missed a name or something you did I apologize. For all your help in supporting this fundraising activity you have all done a great job.
There was a large number of supporters and family who encouraged all the participants. Your efforts are also very much appreciated.
The Big Chainrings were won by Elly Waterman in 44.24 and Steve Gleeson in 34.31, the fastest ever time by a club member in the 10km run.
The Small Chainrings (must be a Junior club member to win) went to Tegan Scott in 18.55 (this beats her winning time of 23.09 in 2010) and dual winners Liam McCoach and Brandon Swift in 18.20. Not a bad effort for Liam seeing he missed the start by 30 seconds.
The conditions were ideal. The sea breeze did not eventuate and the competitors faced a warm but not too hot run. There were many very good times over both distances. Everyone did their best in on the day and are to be congratulated for their effort. Well done to you all.
All donations and the money from the Bar-B-Q will be donated to cancer research.
Apologies to Wade Pum and Katherine Humphreys we missed you as you came over the
line and failed to record a time.
