Sri Chinmoy Princes Park 10K Race Report
Sunday 11 January 2009, Princes Park, Carlton
Perfect conditions running conditions, cool temperatures, light cloud cover and no wind. We could not have wished for better. Congratulations to the 300 who ran, jogged and walked around Melbourne's favorite Princes Park circuit.
A full list of results and photos from the day are now available online.
Well done to our 5km race winners Luke Searle ( 16.40) and Nikki MacFarlane who crossed the line in 16.40 and 19.47 respectively. However, perhaps even more impressive were Bill Reynold's time of 21.10 to take line honours in the 60+ mens category ahead of many half his age and Vern Gerlach who celebrated his 85th birthday by competing in the 5km event in a swift 47.43. Just goes to show that age is no barrier to sterling performance.
In the 10km event Willie Naylor finished more than a minute ahead of his nearest rival in a very commendable 35.47 while Louise Denley made it 2 wins in a row taking out our final event in 2008 and now our first race in 2009 in 40.36.

Look out also for our premier event the Sri Chinmoy Running & Fitness Festival on Sunday May 31 back at Williamstown incorporating the marathon, half marathon, 10km and 4km distances. The course is flat and fast. Earlybird online entry now available.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events in 2009.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
