Jack Gill was the first past the post at Saturday’s run up Mt Chincogan for this year’s Chinny Charge.

Jack completed the course in just 30 minutes and 44 seconds, almost two-and-a-half minutes ahead of Joe Stokes (33:09) in seconds place and Aaron Dower (33:32) a few seconds behind him.

The top three women runners were Courtney Gilfillan (36:55) Bec Curtis (40:55) and Lisa Parkes (41:18).

It was an absolutely perfect day for this well-run annual event with organisers very pleased with the fruit of their labour.
