Waterfront 5k NZ
In New Zealand Debbie Drake raced The Waterfront 5k course, a flat out and back route around the edge of the Wellington inner harbour right in the centre of the city amongst all the tourists across 2 roads and a play-park. It was mayhem at the start in true laid back New Zealand style. Debbie Finished in (23:38) 3rd V50 Lady.
Westward League Cross Country
At windy Westward Ho! The course is flat, but has a number of deep boggy ditches which athletes have to negotiate. It was juniors Iona Farquharson and James Alcock who produced the performances of the day finishing 2nd in their races. These results mean Torbay A.C. are in contention for silverware with the U13
