Who wins Stonnington Men's Gift?
Fast wrote:Yes, agree, if the prize money is at parity or close to parity then the Gifts should be classified as Men’s and Women’s, we need to move towards separate Gifts. I get it at the moment where some girls want to hide in men’s / open races because they have aspirations for a bigger gift.
We also should be aiming to merge some of the smaller gifts to get greater concentration of prizemoney and entries which in turn leads to better quality meetings. We want gifts big enough to encourage our best runners to compete.
Many runners both Men and Women were missing from Trinity just because it was not big enough to consider winning!

Definite mistake, she will not run. I included her because she is on the entry list. You must fit within the category to run all races. Masters athletes, under age, restricted, male and female. It is up to the athletes to ensure they select the correct event and will be moved if it is incorrect and an obvious error. Pretty sure it is an obvious error but fun to leave in for the many people that took the bait.
