In the 5km Adam Sharam (20:57) picked up from his strong run at Dubbo, with the fastest run as he beat home Noah Lamrock (22:44), who gets the ‘yay for the day’, when he stopped to make sure Cameron Ross was ok, before continuing his run. Jack Daintith (23:10) came home in third spot. In a strong womens 5km Amber Rich (22:50) continued on her winning way, to lead home the fast finishing Janet Martin (23:24) and a consistent Ella Lamrock (24:59) was third.
