WOW is all we can say about all of the unbelievable efforts and resulting PBs that were thrown down today. Congratulations to everyone who raced and pushed their fitness to the limit! Here’s how the team did:
Coach Sean was the first in for the team with a PB of 1:16:06.
Nick ran his longest hard effort since being injured, and still finished in an impressive 1:22:07!
Jonathan had an incredible performance, running a PB of 1:22:08! Not only did he earn a H+P B-Standard, he was also a mere 5 SECONDS off of the H+P Masters Men Club Record, which is still held by Dave Rutherford! Jonathan is only a marathon away from being the first H+Per to become a B-Standard champion…
Dave surprised even himself by running an incredible 1:22:53 – even crushing his Fridgee 8km time in the process! Dave also earned a H+P B-Standard today, which now gives him 2 out of the 4 possible B-Standards.

Aaron ran a massive personal best of 1:27:29. This was a H+P Career Best ranking performance, and his first time ever cracking the 19min barrier in an equivalent 5k time! Because of this race, he improved his overall H+P ranking time by 20 seconds and passed two people!
