No one managed to beat the handicapper on a cold and blustery day, but Amanda Broughton came closest. Just four seconds behind her on handicap was John Howell with Glen Wallis and Dave Wilson in third equal.
Harry Burnard just beat Dougal Thorburn to be fastest overall male in 16.14, while Lindsay Barwick (20.24) beat Carla Denehy to be the fastest woman.

Pre race - instructions
We will gather beforehand, 1.45pm, at the new (and closer) venue of St Hilda's Church, 311 The Parade. You can leave gear here and we will return later for afternoon tea and a prizegiving.
The race will start from Island Bay Beach, at 2pm. It is a sealed handicap, which means that we all start at the same time but the fastest runners are given a handicap so everyone should finish with the same (or similar) times. The winner wins the cup.
Some details for the Centennial Cup and Tearle Walking Cup:
1. New venue - we are meeting at the Hall at St Hilda's Church, 311 The Parade, Island Bay. This is much closer to the start line than the previous venue so will hopefully save some time.
2. Existing members please bring a plate - let's provide a nice afternoon tea for our new members.
3. Sealed Handicap - this race is handicapped meaning everyone will have time added on to their finishing time at the end, depending on how fast our handicapper James Turner thinks you are. The winner is the person who 'beats' their handicap by the most. If James has not seen you race recently you might want to let him know so he can give you a more accurate handicap.
4. If you're not running - please consider turning up to help marshall for either the kids' race or the adults. And also turn up for the afternoon tea of course. Let us know below if you can help with marshalling.
5. If you're looking for a drink or chat after prizegiving, the nearby friendly venue where we will gather is Brew'd Bar by the Island Bay shops.
6. You need not drive to the run - consider taking the Island Bay bus which departs regularly and stops directly outside St Hilda's Church. There is also a bike lane that goes right past St Hilda's. (You may have heard of it because it's quite famous in these parts.)
7. Don't forget to bring a friend, colleague, cousin or random friendly jogger from off the street.
