Welcome back to the waterfront 5k!
It that was a lovely night to start the season with - blue skies, warm conditions (okay, it was a little crowded with everyone else enjoying the lovely evening on the waterfront) We had 129 keen runners, walkers (& bubbas) out on course tonight.
First up Congrats to everyone, tonight you achieved a season PB for the Waterfront 5k (probably because it was the first event) - and now you have a goal to bet for the rest of the season.
Top three Men on course tonight were Takehisa Fujiwara (in a quick 16:55) ahead of Matt Bonner & Cameron Forrest.
On the ladies side tonight top three were Lindsay Barwick (in 19:29) followed by Lucy Lawlor, and Sarah Fountain.
The first walker home was Clive McGovern in 30:25 and Daphne Jones was the first Women walker home in 37:24.
Congratulations to all who took part tonight we look forward to seeing you all again this summer
A big thanks to the volunteers from Scottish Athletics for the help last night, with registration, pacing and on the finish line.
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. (hope you made use of the discount on the back of your race bibs!)
