Woke up bright and early for my first race of the year – the Sydney Striders 10km at North Head.
A new course, slightly harder, but a great turnout – almost 400 runners.
Great turnout from HURTS including myself, Scott, Tom, the 3 John’s, Paul, Rich, Ray, Sammy, Pete, Angus, Timmy, Eoin, Mark, Laura, Todd and a host of others.
It was hard to believe it was a Striders sponsored race and not HURTS.
Conditions were perfect – no rain and cool temperatures.
From HURTS, first male was Scotty (33:30) narrowly ahead of Tom (33:41) and John Bartlett (33:41).
Laura took out the HURTS girls award with a 37:33 and third place overall – only 43 secs behind the winner.
Run of the day was Paul McClarnon (34:08) – not bad for 40 plus years of age.
Timmy Lindop took out the whinger award – and this the guy that gives Enda and Dave Kane a hard time.
Full result below.
Can’t wait for Lane Cove in April.
