Brig Bash 5 Mile race

1st July 2009

On a night that was hot enough to melt a glacier mint, two Harriers, David Bunyan and John Denholm, competed in the Brig Bash 5mile road race, a well-established fixture in the road-race calendar.

The course was reasonably flat but there are a few short slopes and twist and turns, not to mention the number of flies and biting things from the fields and trees.

The forecast of slower times was proven to be correct with most of the field posting times 1 to 2 minutes slower than previous years with John and David being no exception with their times being about 1 minute slower than last year.

As usual with events around Perth the after race spread was fabulous with great home baking, enough to go for seconds (just to be polite!).
