Caps 'n Chips


Artist's impression of Strewth - who has been researching running caps recently - finishing Sunday's Fun Run.

Canberra Times 10k Fun Run
Timing chips were introduced for last year's run and proved very successful once again this year. The official results come in time chip order. In other words, if you sprinted to the line with someone and their time is way different from yours, and therefore their place as well, it's OK, they simply crossed the start line with that margin of difference. Conversely, if someone is given the same time as you and you never saw them, it's because your starting and finishing margins were the same. Simple really! And a very good system. Just don't ease off if you are ahead of a rival who has caught you. You need to get away again!

We didn't bother entering a lot of teams this year, like we did last. This didn't affect our participation.

Tony Booth won the M70-79 division.

"Pushin 60" (Ken White, Gary Bowen, Ewen Thompson) won the M50-59 team category.

  1. My time was nearly a minute slower than last year - oops - but woo hoo - I love the cartoon starring meeee - how exciting! :) Congrats to all those speedy geese on great times.

  2. My time has dropped in three runs from 43.33 to 42.12 to 40.59. I like the trend! If this continues, by the time I am 70 I will break 29 minutes. I think it's possible, provided we have the technology to make faster wheelchairs!

  3. Woohoo! If my trend of running a minute slower per year continues, I'll be breaking 70 at 70.

    Humph! Pushin' 60! I'm barely out of the 40s :)
