Perfect weather greeted us at Lake Ginninderra this morning. Blue skies reflected in flat glassy waters, without a breath of wind about. The chilly 2 degrees soon warmed to an agreeable 10-ish degrees, making for excellent running weather. Sure, the grass was a little long at the Bimbi Beach starting line, but that didn't matter once the athletes hit the bitumen path.
The outright winner of the 4km race was the young Alex Fillingham, a feat that was mirrored when his father Kane won the 10km event (36.14).
Laura Ramboer was first woman in the 4km in 17.47, and Georgina Pembroke was first in the 10km in 40.32.
A large contingent of Achilles runners and guides turned out today to support both events.
Congratulations to all competitors at Lake Ginninderra today.
