This weekend sees a return of the Boost Ringwood Gift – a handicap event much like the Stawell Gift. This is for the 100m event only and Bryce has been working on each athlete’s marking based on best times over 100m for the season.
For those unfamiliar with this type of event, the aim is to give each runner the best opportunity to win the race. For example, the fastest runner may run off scratch (100m), while the slowest may run off 7.5m (92.5m), giving the slower runner a head start.
This is a fun initiative and has seen a broad range of athletes win the event, so here’s looking forward to another great Gift Event.
Other events will run as per normal schedule.
