2015 Lifestyle 5k Series Wellington Waterfront Tue 10 Feb


If you have found this blog and you are looking for the 5k run pics then you will need to scroll down a bit. That is because a lot happens on the waterfront and I took a lot of photos of some of the action. 

Fastest around the course tonight was Ben Twyman who cracked out a time of 16.22, just 9 seconds short of a new PB.  This is his 11th win in the in the current 14/15 series which puts him at the top of the winners list. I can't wait for the next Bert and Ben clash because I know both have been training hard, possibly for the 22nd of Feb?

Second fastest was Valentino Luna Hernandez who clocked in at 16.33 picking a new PB by 1 second. Tony Wolken was third in 16.54. 

The reasonable times can most likely be attributed to the excellent weather although this does not eliminate the ever-present congestion on the waterfront.
Participating for the first time was running legend Gabby O’Rourke who grabbed the fastest female spot in a time of 18.20. Gabby was followed by Andrea Peat in 19.17 with Ayesha Shafi a short way back in 19.23.
