ATHLETICS Bendigo Region was well-represented at the latest round of the Victorian Milers track meets in Box Hill.
A group of 16 from Bendigo clubs competed in 1500m or 800m last Thursday night at the Elgar Road circuit.
Highlight of the night was the run by Harrison Boyd from Bendigo Harriers to be second in the men's C-grade 1500m in 3:58.40.
The B-grade 1500m included the Buckell twins, Ned and Matt, racing to 11th and 15th placings in times of 3:58.72 and 4:05.
University's Tullie Rowe ran 4:44.23 to be sixth in the women's B-grade 1500m.
Another of Uni Pride's young guns, Jayden Padgham clocked 4:04.53 to be runner-up in the D-grade 1500m.
