82 runners and walkers fronted for the 2nd race in Waterfront 5km Series, similar to last week's numbers. Weather conditions were again testing - a strong northerly taking the edge off times, and rain setting in during the race.
Leading everyone home was Matt Croxford with a time of 17min 13sec. Mandy Simpson made her series debut a winning one, recording a time of 20min 41sec to be first female finisher. Fraser Samson reversed last week's result, beating Sean Lake to win the walk in 30min 48sec, while Barbara Morrison (33min 32sec) won the women's walk.
A big thanks to the team from the Scottish Athletics Club's women's section (Hinano, Rachael, Kate, Rebecca) plus Don and Chan for the excellent officiating in most unpleasant conditions.
And 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.
