Missed the race last year due to injury. Huge crowds this year. Felt like the start of City 2 Surf with us all packed in tight waiting for the gun.
Course is two loops of a pretty flat course. Wasn't expecting much after only managing a 20:40 last week in a 5k race at SMC.
Conditions were good with a bit of wind on the course. Tried to start off slow but still ended up under 4 min/ks after 2klms.
Struggled around the course and managed to finish in 41:01. At least it was a course PB since I didn't do it last year. And it was 3 mins quicker than Lane Cove in February. Now if only I can knock 3 mins off the next time I do a 10k. I think not.
Great organisation and some fast times by a lot of runners. Wins by Scott Westcott and Melinda Vernon.
