2018 AVOHK 5K Series – Results for Race 2 – Tai Tam Tuk – 1st Sept 2018
Despite the recent heavy rain we managed to get a lucky break in the weather for a few hours. Thank you to those runners that turned up for the race. Congratulations to Charlie Stewart for leading the runners home on a very testing course in a time of 18 mins 35 Secs closely followed by Rafe Man. Great result for Rafe considering he is in the 14/15 age category. Another impressive run by Mo Devlin in the M50 who finished in 8th overall and Ross Milburn in the M75 who recorded a time of 27 Mins 28 Secs. Good to see Ng Fai Yeung still running well and winning the M55 category. He is still the current Hong Kong marathon record holder which he set in the early 1990s in 2 hrs 24 mins. Ken Greer had a very impressive run to win the M60 category. Equally impressive and the first lady home overall was Cade Wright in a time of 20 Mins 47 Secs in the 14/15 age group closely followed by a great run by Pauline Courret 2nd overall in 20 Mins 53 Secs in 12/13 age group. Winning the W40 Category in a very quick time was Amy Munford in 21 Mins 46 Secs fresh from her 2nd overall place in the Cambodia Marathon in August. Winning the W45 category was Rachel Sproston with another strong run in 22 Mins 39 Secs. In the W50 category Angelina Kong continues to dominate and finished in a time of 24 Mins 22 Secs. Another impressive run by Rebecca Lau to win the W70 category in 32 Mins 8 Secs. Again many thanks to all the volunteers that came out and supported this race.
