CAMPERDOWN teenager Will Keogh will be hoping to back up yesterday’s Lake 2 Lake fun run in Melbourne this weekend.
The 17-year-old took line honours in yesterday’s fun run in Camperdown and will compete in the half-distance event at Sunday’s Melbourne Marathon.
He said the hilly 4.5- kilometre course was a perfect little training run.
“It was a pretty good run, it was pretty fast,” he said.
“The hills were a bit interesting though — I haven’t really done much with those hills.
“I wasn’t expecting to do that well but I ran around all right and got the win.”
He said he completed the race in about 18 minutes.
The first woman over the line was Terang’s Nicole Cheek, who also said the hills were challenging.
She completed the race in just over 22 minutes.
“It was a good little race,” she said.
“The hills were tough. It’s certainly hillier than the Noorat to Terang.”
Cheek said she tried to do as many of the local fun runs as possible.
“I always try to do the Noorat to Terang, I’ve done one in Halls Gap which was hilly as well and a few others around the place,” she said.
“They had a great little set-up today. It was a great race, well organised and well advertised around the area. The organisers did a great job.”
Mercy Regional College’s leadership group organised the run, with all funds raised to be donated to a yet-to-be-decided health service in the Corangamite area.
Last year’s event raised close to $2000 for the Camperdown hospital.
