Just who do you think you are? John, Wes, Paul and Drew

Paul Allan kicked off the race for the team, leg one always a difficult leg where everyone is battling for position which can make running tough as everyone wants the racing line.

Wes Tarn was next up, putting in the fastest of the four times of the day with a superb 19:04, then followed up by excellent runs by Drew Inglis (19:08) and John Clifford (19:13) giving the team an overall position of 53 from the 119 male teams on show.

Great running gentleman.
