We had a turnout of 83 keen runners and walkers. Weather conditions weren't the best - a blustery northerly taking the edge off times.
Leading everyone home was Jackie Mexted with an excellent time of 18min 16sec. We think this is the first time in the 9 year history of the Waterfront 5ks that a female has won the race outright. So well done Jackie! Grant McLean was just 2sec behind Jackie. Fraser Samson again won the walk, with a time of 30min 50sec, while Andrea Adams won the women's walk.
Tonight marked the start of our annual participation competition. Be into win a brand new top of the line 32 inch SHARP TV, just in time for Christmas! Between now and the end of the year, compete in just 3 of the Tuesday night races and you will be in the draw for the new TV. And if you do at least 5 races, we will give you an extra entry in the draw! The draw will be on 17 December, and to win you will need to be present at Chicago Bar at 6.15pm when we make the draw. So keep turning up, and be into win. And of course the more times you race, the greater the chance of a Personal Best time!
A big thanks to the team from the Scottish Athletics Club's walking section for the excellent officiating, plus Hinano, Daniel and Don for the great work as pacemakers tonight.
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.
