BMT Design & Technology Employee Wins Running Event
BMT Design & Technology employee Jonathan Woodman recently celebrated a victory in the 1600m frontmarkers footrace at Ballarat this February. Held at Eureka Stadium, the race was part of the annual Ballarat gift, a prominent fixture on the Victorian professional running calendar. From a mark of 180m, Jonathan started second from the back and formed an early pack with four other race backmarkers. The pack advanced through the field seizing the lead with a lap to go. Jonathan stuck hard on the heels of the leaders, waiting until the last 200m before launching off their shoulders and bursting across the line for first place. The winning time was 4 minutes 15.8 seconds. First prize included a cheque for $500, sash and trophy as well as a fitness inspiring Giant Mars Bar and Four X six pack from the major race sponsors.
Jonathan will line up to compete over the 400m, 800m and 1600m distances at the Stawell Gift Easter Carnival this weekend.
