Gary Collins Town Park 5k

Gary Collins Town Park 5k

Gary Collins was a long time loyal club member, who sadly passed away in 2014.

The Gary Collins Town Park Championship is a series of five age-adjusted 5k races that take place on the first Tuesdays of May, June, July August and September (sometimes the dates are shifted if there is a conflict with other races/events).

Members of the club run this course with the aim of improving their 5k time. Trophies are awarded to the male and female runners scoring the highest number of points in the series. Points are awarded based on an age graded finish time. Each participant’s best three performances over the five race series make up their final score.

Congratulations to our 2021 winners:

Ladies: Rita Moran
Gents: Ilia Loubenski
