2016 Gold Programme Newtown Park incorporating Wgtn 5000m Champs and College 2000m Steeplechase



Results

The 5000m had an extremely large field (roughly 31 entries with 27 finishers) but apparently there is a reason.

The story as I heard it was that Wellington Centre did not schedule a 5k championship race into its 2015/2016 programme.

So to put things right Rees Buck requested that it be included into Saturday’s programme.

Bucky rallied the troops which is why the bulk of the field was made up of Scottish Club members. 

I suspect the big turnout was also intended to make a point about the need to include longer track events into the seasons planning.
