Five weeks in, and we had slightly lower numbers tonight (possibly due to the Melbourne Cup running at the same time). So we ended up with 112 Wellington Runners and Walkers joining us on the waterfront last night. Congrats to you all! (And thank you!)
We had 26 new participants for the season tonight, with 12 of them joining us for the first time ever - special welcome to those people.
Excluding the new runners tonight we had 53 runners & walkers set Season PBs tonight (ie you went quicker than in the first four weeks) - Congrats!
Top three Men on course tonight were Harry Burnard (in 16:15) ahead first timer Paul Mulholland (6 seconds behind) and then Ben Twyman (in 16:34).
On the ladies side tonight top three were Sophie Lee (in 19:33) followed by Ange Penberthy (in 19:41), and Sarah Fountain (in 21:11).
The first walker home was Clive McGovern in 30:28 (for the third week in a row) and Diane Morgan was the first Women walker home in 35:38.
Congratulations to all who took part tonight we look forward to seeing you all again this summer
We hope the Pacers from Scottish were a motivation and helped you get through to a goal time. So thank you Rowan, Josh, Hiro, Amanda & Scott
If you would like pacers of different times, let us know. and we will see what Scottish can arrange. They are planning to have at least 3 pacers most nights, and they will set the pace times based on requests (and who is available)
Also a big thanks to the Master Women from the Scottish Athletics for the help last night - much appreciated.
Thanks to Macs Brewbar for the use of their area as our registration and prizegiving location. And for those participants that made use of the location post run to relax and socialise.
If you have any feedback / questions on the results or the event in general - please feel free to drop us an email (@ email@example.com)

Please note: results layout has been altered around from previous weeks - we are now separating the results by event option (ie Walk / Run and by Gender)
