FOUR VINES RUNNING FESTIVAL
The Shepparton Runners Club had a strong turn out at the Four Vines Running Festival last Sunday. With full results here. Stars of the day was Nadine Edwards (5km) & Josh Sait (Half Mara).
Feeling super stoked after claiming first place overall female and becoming the new female 5km record holder in today’s 5km event at the Four Vines Running Festival. Thank you to my Shepparton Runners Club buddies and my family for all your support, especially after the last two weeks….today’s result most certainly softens the blows. ♡♡♡ – Nadine.
Race report – By Steven Trevaskis
In humid conditions I lined up for my 3rd time at running 10 km in the last 6 months. So I wasn’t sure how I would go on this semi-trail run. Could my knee handle it, would the humidity knock me.
I ran the first 3 km before taking my first walk break as I was averaging about 6:30 min/km and feeling the heat. I saw Jacqui and Taren 50 mtrs behind me. I let them pass me on this walk break. I had a second and third walk break before 4.5 km. Jacqui and Taren were pulling away from me, but they were still in reach if I pulled my finger out. I tried not to let my pace slip below 6:40 min/km with 5 km to go.
Somewhere around 7 km mark I caught them and I decide to lock my pace in with their pace. With the official km marks out by 200 mtrs I was checking my Garmin often to see how far I had to go. Also knowing last year the 10 km course was about 10.2 km with a 200 mtr strong climb at the end made everything a guess.
With about 1.5 km to go we slowly increased the pace agreeing to cross the line together. Taren informed us a few times she was struggling and we could go on without her. But we weren’t leaving anyone behind, that was the rule. I felt Jacqui could have pulled away from me as she had some spirts passing people that I didn’t have.
And according to Garmin we crossed the line together 9.74 km in a time of 1:07:28 at a pace of 6:56 min/km.
PBs: 5 k – 21:57
10k – 46:31

Tara and I got into running to get fit and lose a little weight. After coming home from a trip to Mt Everest in Nepal, we sat around and expanded for a couple of months. We started going to parkrun which then lead to Wangaratta fun run where we spoke to Coach Chris about joining the Runners Club. We have gotten a bit fitter and bit faster since then. We try and go to as many road and trail events that we can, meeting cool people and collecting bling. It’s even better when we join up with running friends from SRC. We try and incorporate parkruns in our travels here and overseas, it becomes a real collection. We try and do other active stuff other than running, we like to hike, bike, climb, if there’s an iconic mountain in the mix, all the better. I believe all pineapple on pizza is horrendous, the anchovy is clearly king in the world of pizza toppings. Over the next few months I have just the usual summer runs booked in, Goldrush Trail, Wang, Albury, as well as Christmas and NYE parkruns. Then I’ll give Tara some close attention as she prepares for her first marathon in March.
