Last weekend I entered my second Run Auckland 5k race of the year. This race was at the Onepoto Domain in Northcote, taking in a 2.5 k circuit of the domain and local streets.
The Domain is the remains of an ancient volcanic crater which has been reclaimed and leveled off making for a flat start to the race before heading out to the surrounding streets where the there is a 50 meter vertical climb over the next two K before dropping back down to the start / finish area in the Domain.
My race time was 26:40 almost two minutes slower than my last outing, thanks mainly to the hilly course.
Age group wise I was again 4th male in the 40-49 age group.
