Older runners in C2S

Just another quick observation about the Sydney City to Surf run this year. As a M67yo, some stats that I found interesting about the run this year are the number of elderly finishers.

M60-69 ----1375

M70-79-----321

M80-99------37

F60-69--------995

F70-79--------149

F80-99---------20

Of course, as in all the other younger age groups, there were also a large number of non-finishers. But it is said:

COMING FIRST BEATS COMING LAST- but

COMING LAST BEATS DID NOT FINISH- but even more importantly

DID NOT FINISH TRUMPS DID NOT START!

My last post for a couple of weeks - we are off to sea! I am looking forward to experimenting with the treadmill on the ship's gym _ have never used one

  • Hi Baza, I missed your original post about the race when I was on holiday but have just read it now. You did fantastically well my friend and you should be very proud of all you've achieved. Have a wonderful holiday. Enjoy the rest and don't spend the whole time playing on the treadmill :)
