96 runners and walkers (97 if you count Mary Fisher's guide Abi Hiester) fronted for the 15th race in Waterfront 5km Series. The weather was quite chilly with a brisk southerly to slow the outward journey but assist on the return.
Dave Parsons turned out for the first time this series and led the field home in 16:21. He was followed by Grant McLean in 17:13 and Dylan Wood with 17:53. First time entrant Sarah Booth held out Bernie Portenski in the early race to be the fastest woman overall in 21:06 (Bernie ran 21:11). Anthea Morrison with 21:38 was the fastest in the second wave with the third fastest time. Stuart Hood decided to walk this week and was easily fastest with an excellent time of 26:50. Terri Grimmett was the first woman walker in a time of 30:18.
A big thank you to the team from the Olympic Harriers: Ele, Rob B, Geraldine, Grant, Graeme, Murray and Mark.
