Freo Fun Run - 4km with Sammie

Great run by Sammie as she took 3 minutes off of her 4km PB running 24:44.  Had a difficult patch between 2km and 2.7km when she was expecting the drink station to be at 2km.  It was also a bit windy along the wharf.

She finished really strongly and once again beat her Dad ...

Splits were 5:40; 6:05; 6:47 (inc walk thru the drink station); 5:52; 4:15 (last 55m).

This was a pretty good event for a fun run but wouldn't have been too great for the quicker 4km runners who ran into the back of and had to finish with the slower 10km runners down a pretty narrow chute.

As the 4km started 45mins after the 10km we were able to see the finish of the 10km.  Dean Menzies, Cody Angell and Todd Ingraham were top 3.  Dave Bryant looked like he had a good run finishing about 7th.

Rox took quite a few good photos.
