There were too many non-junior Striders there to mention, as this race is now a 'super series' event - so apologies for concentrating on juniors only!
David Gardiner, aged 16, WON the 5K outright in 17:26. He did not stop grinning from that moment on - his happiness increased by the fact that he won a nice trophy and a Garmin! Ewan Shingler won the under 12 boys in 21:15, Josh Phillips won 12-15 boys in 18:41, Jadon Wilson ran 23:24 and Benji ran 28:16. Beth Murray was 4th 12-15 in 25:43. Caroline Y won the 50-59 age group(!) and Jason McIntosh was 2nd in the whole race with 17:42 - he is not a junior, but his son soon will be.
In the 10K, Cath Rasmussen (a veteran at this event) ran with 12 year old son Daniel, with both running an impressive 52:02. John Bowe ran with daughter Leila and junior strider Ronan McCarthy. Gus Wong was third in the 16-19 age group, with dad Tony Wong running a respectable 43:57.

|I can vouch for the fact that Benji did not look this happy as the race wore on!|
