Sort of a local fun run. Organised by Jane Saville the triple Olympian Race Walker. They had a 6k run & walk on at the same time plus a few kids 1.2k races before ours started at 9am.
Yarra Bay is on Botany Bay if you don't know where it is. Just keep heading south down Anzac Pde until you almost get to La Perouse. The start was just near the sailing club.
Before the start I saw that Mr Horne and Mr Harrison were in attendance. The battle went to Jeremey Horne for the inaugural race in a slick 17:53. The course was run on bike paths around the Bay and then out along a breakwall and back. Very humid this morning and we had a headwind on the way back as we ran North to the finish. Only a couple of hills that were not too long.
My race went ok started off fairly easy and basiccally stayed in about the same spot for the whole race. Managed to get 3rd place in my age group of 40-49. No medals but the 1st place did get some Diadora gear as a prize. Finished in 23:26. Very happy to get back under 4 min ks again. It's been so long in a race. Plenty of post race fruit and a sponsors bag of goodies, and money went to Ian Thorpes children foundation.
Scored a lucky dip prize of six different blocks of chocolate. Excellent!
