Tonight we had over 160 participants in our 5km including 50 children. Our race was combined with AMI Round The Bays and Sport Wellington's Kids Fun Run. The fastest child was Michael Poa in a very fast 18.48
Over 200 children entered the kids races, with distances ranging from 1 - 5km. It was great to see the next generation of walkers and runners pushing play.
In the main race, the first male runner home tonight was Dave Parsons who battled it out with a tough field to win in 16:22. Our first female home tonight was Nicola Hankinson, running 20.52.
Our walkers have had a competitive year, and tonight was no different. Our first male walker home was Fraser Sanson in 29:56 and Jackie Wilson was first female walker with a good time of 32:09.
We also gave away our annual participation prize tonight. This went to Tony Gormley. Tony has been a regular racer and he took home a 32 inch Sharp TV for his frequent efforts.
Thank you to all the helpers we have had throughout the year. We would not be able to put on the event without the help of our volunteers from Wellington Scottish Athletics Club and The Olympic Harriers.
Also 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 (email@example.com). She would be more than happy to answer your questions or source a pair of your favourite shoes.
Have a safe and happy holidays and we look forward to seeing you in 2014 (first race 7 January), ready to target new goals and challenges.
