2013-2014 Lifestyle Sports Waterfront 5k Series - Race 17
Tuesday, 26 November 2013
The weather wasnít the greatest, with a bit of a southerly blowing and a light but persistent rain. This kept things a bit cooler than it has been lately for the 55 runners and walkers who took part and also meant that the course didnít have the usual foot traffic on it. There were also traffic jams on the roads which meant it was touch and go as to whether the turnaround marker would get there in time. Fortunately it did.
Martin van Barneveld turned out for the first time this series and led the field home in a good time of 15:29. Following him home were Adam Carlson (16:18) and Dan Hunt (16:39). Also competing for the first time was the winner of the womenís field Rebecca Keat. She finished in a time of 18:16, beating Michelle Van Looy who ran a personal best time of 19:34. The only walker of the day was Fraser Samson who finished in a time of 30:17.
A big thank you to the team from the Olympic Harriers: Ele, Rob B, Cathryn, Tim, Graeme, Murray and Mark.
