Weipa Running Festival 2019

Race Director: Lauren Gregory

What an amazing weekend!!! Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2nd Weipa Running Festival. This year we had over 200 runners register for the 5 races. The morning started off with what I have been told was fantastic running weather, it was slightly chilly when the marathon started but soon turned into a perfect dry season day. The Festival itself was full of children, families and locals who joined us to cheer on runner’s as well as to enjoy the local coffee, snow cones, pancakes, smoothies and bacon and eggs. Is that not a runner’s perfect recovery breakfast! All the marshals and aid stations set up on course in perfect timing for the runners to come through, whilst volunteers at the oval were busy getting ready for the first runners to approach the finish line.

1st to cross the line in the 42km marathon was Craig Armstrong who took out the 2018 record at a speedy 3:16:48, breaking the record by just minutes. Almost 10 minutes behind Craig was Gregory Sandrey, Gregory is only new to the Weipa terrain and did an amazing run. 3rd place was set by Jay Oribin, followed by Ross Dawson, Ross is the course coordinator and knows these tracks like the back of his hand. Wilco Jacobsz (4:06:53) was the 1st female to cross the finish line in the Marathon, followed by first timers, Trae Kuehn and Matt Richardson, so great to see new faces taking on the challenge! Last but not least was Rose Robins, who was the 2nd female to cross the finish line in the Marathon, Rose received the loudest applause of the day with the festival coming to a hold to cheer her to the end, well done all 8 Weipa Local competitors in the 2019 42km Marathon.

In the half marathon, we had a first-time visitor from VIC who took out 1st place, congratulations Peter Barlett (1:29:35), not only did he come through the finish line first, but Peter broke the 2018 record by 20 minutes. Peter has already said he’s excited to return in 2020 for the challenge of the full marathon. 2nd and 3rd place was taken out by two Weipa Locals, Crisden Russ in 2nd place, and Sam McCready in 3rd place. Bianca Graham from VIC (1:45:45) was the 1st female to cross the finish line in the half marathon, this was Bianca’s 2nd Weipa Running Festival and she also broke the 2018 female record by 4 minutes. Closely followed by Bianca was fellow runner from VIC Karyn Freeman who came in 2nd in the females. 3rd place was taken out by local runner Nicole Widmer. Congratulations all 33 runners in the 2019 Half Marathon!!!

This year we had 5 teams enter the half marathon, 1st place was taken by Weipa Bowls Club B (2:12:02) Daylen Maunsel and Tallis Mowles, followed by 2nd place, Weipa Bowls Club A, Tahneesia Maunsel and Mariana Wano. 3rd place was Jack and Jules, Jacki Goodwin and Julie Zeimer. Great work to all the teams including Weipa Bowls Club C and the Kuehnets.

In the 10km the females dominated the first few places, Megan McNicol (49:03) from VIC took the honors of 1st place and broke the female record from 2018 by 28 seconds! Followed by Megan was 1st male James Skewes (51:48). 2nd place in the females was Maxine Hughes who was closely followed by 3rd female Sarah Quaife. 2nd male was Mick Johnston who was visiting from outside Weipa and 3rd place was Ross Hyytinen, a Weipa local, well done all the 10km runners, it’s a tough track!!!

The 5km was a quick run, the first 3 runners across the line were female, 1st place was Gillian Fox, (25:33), 2nd place was Lucy Martin and 3rd place was Junior runner Elsie Maher. First male across the finish line was Daniel Yunker (28:46) followed by Junior Jake McDonnell in 2nd place and Tim Ryan in 3rd.

The event had a great finale with 45 very excited kids, parents and other adults running and walking a 2.5km course finishing under the arch on Andoom Oval.

Last but not least, congratulations to our 10 virtual entrants who were unable to participate in the festival. (results are included at the bottom of this page).

It was awesome to see the competitors cross the line with Weipa spirits and no injuries or incidents!  Many runners have already said they will be bumping up their training to move into the 10km, 21.1km and even the marathon at next year’s event. We hope that all our competitors will return to compete again in 2020. Don’t forget, you can also run virtual!!!

After celebrations were held at the Carpentaria Golf Club which just like last year, was an amazing turn out of runners, friends and family. Age category presentations and prizes were presented followed by entertainment, jumping castles and face paint! An event not to be missed!

All in all, the event went off well due in no small part to the event committee and our amazing volunteers who worked tirelessly, not only on race day, but also leading into the event. Thank you for your support. As the race director, I feel privileged to have been the Race Director in Weipa’s 2nd Running Festival and excited for 2020!!!
