NSW Novice Cross Country Championship, Scarborough Park, Ramsgate. 11am-4pm. Some rain showers. 19°C.
Fewer races than in previous years: 2km, 2.5km, 3km, 5km (2), 10km, 4x 1km handicap relay. Positioned at the far southern edge of the course. Worked out well because I was close to some food stalls set up in an adjacent primary school which doubled as a polling station for the Cook electorate (Scomo). Reported a Bankstown athlete who had already finished for pacing his slower mate on his second lap (TR 6.3.1). Apparently both had being warned earlier in the lap. Referee Dave wanted to issue a formal warning to the pacee and give the pacer a yellow card.
