Santanol Kununurra half Marathon
16 June 2019
2019 Sandalwood Sanctuary Kununurra 1/2 Marthon : 16th June 2019 "Dry Season" running weather at its best - So get those running shoes on and crack to it. If the body and mind is not ready for the full 21.1, grab a mate for a Duo entry or a make a team in the Quad.
Clear sky greeted the largest field at this year's Half Marathon. It was fantastic to have multiple teams from Ceres Farms, Kununurra Police and Clontarf (Kununurra and Halls Creek). A great effort for all those runners tackling a half marathon for the first time. Also fantastic for a large group of runners from Darwin and Broome to be at this year's event - well-done to you all. Action started at 7am sharp and the pace was on from the start. It was Halls Creek long distance runner, Michael Douglas (57 years young) showing the younger runners a clean set of heals, winning in 1:28:22.
The battle for female solo line honors came down to the last 500m with Katie Cartwright (Broome) using her experience to pass local Jessica Sunderland to win by 22 seconds. Jessica, at 17 years of age, has many more half marathons yet to run. First team home was "Team Turtle" in 1:31:10 and first duo was from the Kununurra Police in 1:41:00. Provisional results below, with full results (including splits) to be posted early this week. Congratulations to all our 2018 runners!
