Success in a far away place

Sheralee Bailey won the Australian Middle Distance championships in W45 today (October 2nd), held in the Cascade Mountains. Looking at routegadget, the terrain seems to be a complex mixture of rock pavements, boulders, open forest and denser stuff with plenty of undulations. She finished 90secs ahead of her nearest rival. Nice to see the DFOK name at the top of the results again. Well done Sheralee.
