2017 Scottish Waterfront 5k Wellington Tue 17 Oct


A pleasant evening with great running conditions which naturally means a crowded waterfront. Forty years ago the place would have been deserted. 

Ben Twyman back from the racing wars took no prisoners and tonight romped home in 16.22 to pick up his first 5km win of the new season.  Looking good Ben.  

Second was Michael Du Toit in 16.56 followed by last week’s winner Dan Hunt in 17.01. 

But you guys are lucky that Mountain Running champ Dan Jones (17.48) was just out for the view tonight and wasn’t going hard out.

The fastest woman tonight was Hinano Andrews in 19.44 with Greta Woolloff in 2nd in 19.54 and Mel MacPhee 3rd in 20.25. Greta could be one to watch.

In the Critchlow/Thompson stakes, Will C goes one up against Brendon T by running 30 seconds faster than last week to clock 18.05. 

Brendon just wasn’t in the hunt tonight finishing in 19.55 and way down on last week’s dead heat time of 18.35. But maybe the last laugh goes to Brendon who won the spot big spot prize provided by the Shoe Clinic.
