There are 7 male races and 3 female races starting at 6pm at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics track today.
Should be a good night for it with the cooler weather.
Due to my inglorious year of running I'm in the G race at 6pm.

1. Joshua Wright 8:13.73
2. Tom Fawthorpe 8:14.24
3. Daniel Bulmer 8:14.87
1. Lisa Corrigan 9:03.53

There was a great run by Jonathan Hew in the Men's C race who with about 500m to go and being behind 1st by about 80m unleashed a monster kick at the bell and went past the lot with about 250m to go to win the race in 8:42. Bekele would have been impressed.

Also great races by Nancy Newsome and Robyn Basman in the Womens B race. Possibly Masters records, NSW record for Newsome and a Australian record for Basman?
The women's race was a great contest between Corrigan and Brickacheck. Belinda Martin also ran a big PB to get third overall, and to become NSW Champion.
I did 11:14 in the G race. Was happy with a masters PB but would liked to have been closer to 11 or under.

There are plenty of 3km races, but only one State championship.
Check out the ANSW website for upcoming comps such as Club Premiership, allcomers etc.
