Another week, another record turnout. This week 216 competitors fronted for the Lifestyle Sports Waterfront 5k. Numbers were boosted by 39 of the Firebirds junior cricket squad coming along for some pre season fitness training. It was great to see them along. Fastest Firebird was Liam Taufale (20min 6sec) and Amelia Kerr fastest female (21min 28sec).
The weather conditions were reasonable, although the moderate northerly slowed times. Leading everyone home was Ryan Woolley with a time of 16min 33sec. He was chased home by Nick Rogerson 11 sec behind. Nadine Fromont sneaked under 20min (19.55) to win the women's race. John Roskvist (32min 39sec) and Terri Grimmett (30min 49sec) chalked up another win in the men's and women's walk respectively in good times.
A big thanks to our sponsors - in particular Lifestyle Sports for the weekly gift voucher and Chicago Sports Cafe for the free drink afterwards and bar tabs as spot prizes. Lifestyle has a very extensive range of running shoes. If you can't get to the shop in Tawa, send Manager Karen an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). She would be more than happy to answer your questions or source a pair of your favourite shoes.
We look forward to seeing you all back again in the coming weeks. Spread the word around your friends and workmates. Issue a few challenges and then enjoy some post race analysis over a beer.
