Summers time for Tan

New South Wales' Harry Summers has run the second fastest time by an Australian around Melbourne's famed Tan track to help guide Box Hill Athletics Club to victory at the AV Tan Relays.

Summers' leg of 10:37 (unofficial) sees him move ahead of marathon legend Steve Moneghetti (10:41) on the top time list. Craig Mottram has the fastest time for the ciruit at 10:08, with only internationals William Chirchir (10:19), Noah Ngengy (10:22), Luke Kipkosgei (10:26) and Bob Kennedy (10:29) having run faster than Summers.

Much of the pre-race focus was on Sydney University Athletics Club chances of upsetting Victoria's clubs on their home turf. In the end, Box Hill were clear winners by 55 seconds, while Sydney Uni was third across the line, seven seconds behind Knox Athletics club.

An impressive opening leg from Dua Yoa (10:57 unofficial) saw the Ballarat Region team claim the bronze medal in the Victorian title.
