RB Harriers Yarra Bay Road Race 5.5k - 3rd

A Randwick Botany Harriers Road race held down at Yarra Bay near La Perouse. Great views of Botany Bay and the freight terminal across the cemetery.
Started on the grass for about 100m and then along a bike path before going out along the breakwall road into the Bay where we turned around. I was in 3rd until about the 700m mark and then took back the spot at about the 1.5k mark and held the position to the finish.

Coming back from the turnaround into the wind was tough and my speed slowed more than I wanted. Finished in 3rd with a time of 21:05 for the 5.5k. Average pace of 3:50 per klm.
