Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
Pat and Derek Turnbull hosted the Wyndham harriers club in 1988 in a serious of long distances over Forrest Hill in 1988.
In atrocious conditions the runners set off and it was not until they got into the bush line that they received any shelter from the heavy rain and winds.
The senior pack was headed by Murray Guise, Gavin Warburton, Derek Turnbull and Denis Warburton. They ran for 18 miles over gruelling tracks and gravel roads.
The above runners put pressure on the rest of the field which saw the back runners off the pace.
Gavin Warburton lead the pack out and once they got to the bush line, it was here the wily veteran, Derek Turnbull took over and put a short gap between him and the rest of the pack.
Other runners were:
Grant Johnstone, R. Todd, S. Parkes, G. Rogers, G. Morton, B. Hopkins, Zane Butson. G. McKenzie, M. Pugh, A. Morton.
Women: G. Warburton, E. Cameron, L. Dickey, C. Peterson,
