2015 Cigna Round the Bays Sun 22 Feb

No - this is not Chris McIlroy

According to the Dominion Post about 14000 people took part in the various run distances that we know as Cigna Round the Bays. For many this event will be their annual mass-participation outing, while for others every inch of the course will be very familiar.
I wasn’t there to capture the race action but it seems that Stephen Day and Katie Kemp did well to take out the male and female Half-Marathon titles respectively for 2015. In the 6.5km Tim Hodge came out of retirement (temporary retirement I hope) to improve on his 2nd placings from 2012, 2013 & 2014.

The top 3 men’s and women’s placing are as follows plucked from the full results.
