Was great to join forces with the Ernies again for the Sunshine Coast Marathon event this morning.
The heat was extreme late in the morning so I truly felt sorry for the 5 hour marathoners with what they had to go through – hope everyone came through Ok.
Highest placed of our runners was Lynda Bateson with 30:48 for 2nd in the Over 60s 5k.
Daniel Casey showed good grit for 5th place in the Under 18 5k in 18:16. Daniel’s mum Melissa Harper was 16th in the Over 50s 5k in 32:14.
John Purcell was 16th in the Over 50s 5k in 29:27 while Ken Hastie did pretty well with 44:20 for 9th in the Over 50s 10k.
Andrei Wightman was very good with 1:32.19 for 14th in the Over 50s Half Marathon while John White paced the Marathon to record 3:13.50 to be 6th in the Over 45s.
Certainly this event is getting bigger all the time so well done to the organisers on their promotional efforts.
