2016 Gazley Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k 5k & Kids Magic Mile Wellngton Sun 26 Jun

Race Results

Dom Post Race Report

Sometimes I wonder if the organisers have bitten off more than they can chew by having so many races. Obviously the choice of distances means more entries and more revenue but for all races apart from the full and half-marathon the finish chute area can be chaotic.

Being a local body election year some mayoral candidates decided that it might be a good idea to turn up to with their supporters show the flag. Nick Leggett was one of them and Justin Lester's name was also being bandied about.  This gives new meaning to the term "running for office".
