22 questions with Chris Armstrong.
- By Brady Threlfall
This weekend the Shepparton Running Festival will take place and we caught up with Chris Armstrong to ask him our 22 questions to find out more about him as a runner.
Sam and Tara in Wagga last weekend.
Wagga trail run by Sam and Tara
Tara decided last Wednesday that a trail run a week before the Shepp Running Fest would fit perfectly in our running plan, and she was correct. We’ve run the Wagga Trail Fest a couple of years back, a fairly flat trot along the Murrumbidgee levee bank. But that levee bank is now getting upgraded, and the run has relocated, to the hills. The elevation gain is now 157 metres, over a mix of fire trail and single track. A three hour drive there, and a three hour drive home made it a big day, but a great run with new bling and race tee shirts. Bring on Sunday for the Shepp Running Fest!
Sam and Tara met someone who ran at Willow park parkrun before heading to Wagga. That’s dedication in heavy rain.
Willow Park parkrun Wodonga by Steven Trevaskis
After driving through heavy rain for 2 hours and an unscheduled loo stop, I got to Wodonga 2 minutes late. I pulled up and saw the runners heading off. So I ran to the start area, handed in my jumper and started to chase everyone down.
I didn’t really have a time in mind, but chasing down and catching my Albury based friend (Ange) would be a bonus as this was her first official run since being knocked off her bike by a kangaroo 10 months ago. The course was 2km out then back 2km with a 1 km loop to finish off.
The great man Brendan Peel was at the launch and ran in a time of 25:08. My Strava time was 31:28 with my parkrun time of 35:03 showing a late start of about 4 minutes. Ange came in with an impressive time of 33:43.

After Ange’s horrific accident Ange conquered mountains on the bike and now she’s got her eyes on a mountain half marathon at the Tassie Trail Running Festival
