Robertsons 5K Race 5

So just like that May has gone and the last of our (semi) virtual 5k is now complete after Saturday saw our final group of EAC meet up to get themselves around the Meadows.

Lots of competitive battles going on across the field, with Tom Leeman getting across first in a fab time of 17:53 – a new pb and his first time under 18mins I believe so well done Tom!

Fastest Times

The standard of times recorded was quite something with 44 runners making it under 20 minutes – I would try and call out all the times inside pbs but there are too any to mention so hopefully everyone is feeling rightfully chuffed.

The battle for fastest male went right to the wire at a Blast 5k, with Ian Whitaker taking the crown after edging out Stuart Johnston by just 1 second. The fastest ladies time was also recorded at a blast 5k when Elaine Eadie clocked a very impressive pb of 17:58, although she has let me know “I think I can go faster” so hopefully we won’t have to wait until too long to see another few numbers taken off.
