This race took place on Sunday 3rd from Burswood, Perth. Freezing cold morning but clear after a week of rain. The 10k race had 259 starting competitors and the 5k course another 120 so it was a great turnout for a day when it could have been sooo much easier to stay tucked up in a warm bed!

The fastest girl on the 10k course was triathlete Katey Gibb (in the 20-24yr old category) with an awesome time of 38:22 !
In my age category (40-44), Lara Mills was the winner and also placed 6th overall with a time of 41:50. In fact 4 of the top 10 overall finishers were women in the 40-44yr old category.

So, whilst I'm no runner, I did ok for myself. My Garmin showed the 10k distance completed in 52:13 but I forgot to stop the recording so this file is a bit longer - no excuses though! Anyway, cateogry place was 24th/46.

My buddy Kate however did it in 45:12, and she placed 2nd in the 35-39 category! Well done Kate you legend!

It's actually not that often that you get the chance to run a straight 10k in race conditions as a fresh run (ie not triathlon) - always good to know your 10k time.
