The first race of the new 2016/17 waterfront race season. A chilly night with a nasty northerly breeze which didn't seem to deter the 143 or so starters. A big crowd really, especially when compared to the relatively low numbers turning up for the latter stages of the 2015/16 season. Darryl says the good turnout is due to his vigorous emailing strategy, which sound about right.
The only change from last year is that that there is now only a single start time with everybody starting together.
Dan Hunt was first home, and rumour has it that he has defected from Scottish Harriers to Victoria University Harriers. Looking for a university blue Dan?
And one other thing. Scottish might need to include these Tuesday night races into their official website calendar and Facebook page. To date there is no information on this event apart from the Waterfront 5km Race Facebook page.
