2014 Lifestyle 5k Series Wellington Waterfront Tue 16 Dec


Results to come

A brilliantly fine night meant that runners had to use all of their sidestep skills to dodge dozy pedestrians, kamikaze cyclists, poser skateboarders and the paparazzi. 
Leading out the main race at 5.45pm was Hamish Carson, no doubt keen to grab back his course record from rival Julian Matthews. Behind him were a clutch of elite runners including Nick Horspool, Stephen Day and Matt Dratvitski.   
Ben Twyman made his two weekly appearances to make up a competitive field, but unfortunately no sign of any fast women.  
To top it off there were a bunch of younger runners trying their hand at 5k as part of the Cigna Kids Round the Bays thingy. 
 
Hamish Carson, 4x national 1500m title holder and sub-four minute miler  14.51



Nick Horspool 15.31 - first time for this event



Stephen Day 15.55 - returns after about 4 years to produce a PB, and Matt Dravitski 15.57





Ben Twyman 16.30





 
Adam Steinmetz






 
Tim Hawkes - former national 400m track champion 20.47

2014 Gold Programme Newtown Park Sat 6 Dec


Results

As was to be expected attedance at Newtown Park was low due to the NZ Secondary Schools Track & Fields Champs in Whanganui. Despite that there was still plenty of competition especially in the sprint events Terry Hawkins-Collins and Saravee Sos continue to slug it out. In the field events the Kiwi Club dominate in the throwing disciplines in fact it would be a rarity for a thrower not to be a member of that club. Also spotted was Daniel Wallis now reported to be leaving Scottish for North Shore Bays.
