Thanks for being part of our event yesterday evening. We hope you enjoyed the Waterfront5k last night, and if you were a newbie, we would love to see you back again sometime soon - the more numbers made the event more impressive and we had a great atmosphere out there on course, plus also before and after.
Last evening the Waterfront5k was humming with 116 runners & walkers on the start line.
We had 12 new & amazing participants for the season tonight, with 10 of them joining us for the first time ever - a special welcome to those people, we hope you had a great run around the Wellington Harbour with us.
Excluding the new runners tonight we had 24 runners & walkers set Season or Lifetime Waterfront 5k PBs tonight - Congrats!
The weather this evening for a change was not extremely hot, thanks to a strong breeze from the north - Occasionally it is good to change the weather about! (what is your preference, hot or windy????)
Top three Men on course tonight were Will Critchlow in 17:48, followed by Timothy Judge and Frank Smith
On the ladies side tonight top three were Emma Barrett (in 20:35), followed by Lucy Lawlor & Mikalya Joyce
