Robertsons 5K Handicap Winner

Handicap Winner

Times inside previous pbs were making there way to me left, right and center as the competition showed no sign of easing up as each week passed.

However after a bit of number crunching we do have a winner and I’m pleased to say John James Hancock J has take the 2021 Robertson 5k crown after setting a super time of 17:21 to smash an already impressive pb by more than 40 seconds. A top performance following a winter of hard training, which I’m sure you’ll all agree makes John a more than worthy winner.

Current plan is to do a wee prize giving before Alex’s 10am session on Saturday (June 5th), so if you’re about (either to do the session of just to watch) please come along to pass on your congrats.
