Following the cancellation of Race 1, everyone had their fingers crossed for Race 2 to go ahead. The heavy rain the night before had lead to a last minute change of the course but the race was on. The conditions made the course challenging with a few hills thrown into the mix.
At 8am, after a group warm up, the 5km race was underway. 4 BSTC members took part in this race with Jon Flatley coming 11th overall and 3rd in his age group!
The 10km race started 45 mins later. Our very own VP Ben Chidgey crossed the finish line in 39:22 which was easily enough to take first place! Well done Ben!
3 other members took part in the 10km including Julian Hart achieving 6th in his age group despite tapering for Rotorua half marathon the weekend after.
The next race is 21st May at Barry Curtis Park. You can enter on race morning or online before the event so come along and join us at the next event. Click on our pic to head staright to the site for more info.
