The 2005 Golden Street Mile and Results
A small but enthusiastic crowd of runners enjoyed perfect spring weather for the first SCT Golden Street Mile on Saturday 1 October. A surprise entrant was Jackie Fairweather backing up just a week after running for Australia in the World Mountain Running Trophy. Jackie won outright the third 'Golden Mile' of the day, the open and veteran's event and recorded the fastest women's time of 5:11.
The first 'Golden Mile' was for Under-10 runners and was won by Toby Graham and Nicola Torley. The Under-18 race was taken out by Ben Dawson in 4:50 after a sprint finish with Rob Torley. The fastest female in this race was Catriona Windsor who ran 6:11. Charlie Modrak was the fastest 50+ runner while a South Canberra member from the 1960's, Colin Robbie ran an excellent 7:45.
The last event of the day was the Handicap Golden Mile. Mike Torley was the surprise Men's Champion just ahead of the fast finishing Dimity Herstik (Women's Champion) and Jackie Fairweather.
Dot Mills who has been a member of SCT for 40 years, presented category winners with their sashes in the excellent venue of the Sea Scout Hall.
SCT would like to thank all volunteers who helped on the day, especially Mike Sexton and family.
