The Open Mens team was kicked off in fine style by Adam Pyke (11:21) looking very fit and strong. Xavier Chapman in deep preparation for the Melbourne Marathon next month ran 12:51, with Chris Milne 15:11, Dino Imbriano in great shape with 14:15 and Andrew Thomas dipping under 16 minutes with 15:57.
Thanks to our officials Lincoln Mah, Daniel Mioni & Sam Doble, for without them none of today would have been possible. Also to the team recorders, a big thank you to Anne Howard, Martin Pyke & Matt Forster.
A fantastic end to the season that contained so many highlights.
