2017 Scottish Waterfront 5k Wellington Tue 7 Feb

Results and Daryl's Race Report

Today's conditions were perfect for racing with a light southerly garnished with a light drizzle of the wet stuff. No wonder there were so many PB's. Meanwhile out on the pond high school rowers and dragon boaters took advantage of the calm conditions to get in some decent training. A duck was also spotted. 

They probably have a sign like this at the New York Marathon
