Rubbish 5K Report, look out giant slugs on the course!

Race 5
The weather during the day had been horrendous with torrential rain and gale force winds.
Thankfully by the evening the wind and rain had cleared and the sun threatened to break through the clouds.
Before the start of the event I gave the warning of slugs on the course!
Yes landing on one of these slimy creatures might result in a nasty slip!

The Start
From the off Rob set a hot pace with me, Harry and his friend Toby sitting on for the ride!
Harry and Toby spent the first lap chatting away like two school boys on the back seat of the school bus, it seems they were using the event for training with a plan to push the second lap.

Lap 2
Into the second lap and Toby made his move up a short steep climb with Harry in hot pursuit1
I followed Rob until about 600m to go where my legs started to blow!
I was hoping for a sub 18 min run on this trail course but sadly it was not to be.
Even so  I did achieve my 2nd fastest time on the course [my course best was set back in 2009, only 4 sec off!].
Harry won with 17.22, could he have broken Ben Johnson's record 16.45 if he'd gone all out from the start?
Well we have one event left to find out!
Vicky Harvey had a great run to finish first lady finishing with 22.35.
The last Rubbish 5K will be a handicap race on September 12th at 7pm.
Brian Grice has set the handicaps as follows;
P.s. A Big Thanks have to go out to Brian for timing and results this year, Cheers!
A quick plug for the CROSBY 5 K RUN
Which will start at 7pm 29th Aug from the adventure centre at Crosby Marina
UKA licensed race, very fast course1
More details can be found on the Southport Waterloo A/C website.
This will also be Jon's birthday bash night out in Crosby.
