Pa 5000 breaks record



The weather was cloudy, but it didn't deter a record number of participants for the Pa 5000 Fun Run/Walk event, held each year as a fundraiser to support the Waiau Pa netball club.
192 people crossed the finish line on Sunday 7 May, at the annual event. A barbeque was a hot favourite while the runners and walkers waited to hear if they had won a spot prize. 
This year a tag timing system was trialled which allowed everyone's times to be put online later in the day. 
The organisers say they are very grateful to all who attended and supported the event, including the local businesses who helped with sponsorship or donations for trophies and spot prizes. 
The winners are as follows: 
Men's – James Kuegler 17:40.9
Women's – Danielle Ingram-Trevis 19:00.2
Masters Men's – Dixon Peters 18:37.9
Masters Women's – Cass Young 21:31.0
