Athletics Wellington Meeting, Newtown Park Stadium – 10 November 2018
Five athletes earned their qualification time to be considered for the New Zealand team to go to the World Cross Country Championships in Finland next year. Billed as a New Zealand equivalent to the Highgate Night of 10000m PBs, the Agency Group 10,000m event in Wellington on Saturday featured 89 starters across three races, and dozens of people running personal best times.
In the second race of the night, Lisa Cross immediately went ahead of the 35-minute pace team that she needed to beat to get the qualification time she was seeking. She continued to push throughout the race, reeling in several other runners and finishing in second place in the mixed field in 34:23.51 PB. Also in the mixed field Nicole Mitchell 36:50.35 PB, Mel Aitken 36:56.85 PB and Lindsay Barwick 37:47.71 PB.
In the last race of the night, two pace groups quickly set into their work.
Hamish Carson led a lead group on sub-30-minute pace. After a first lap of 68, he ticked off a long string of perfect 72-second laps. Nick Horspool, and Niam Macdonald tucked tidily in his wake for the journey. When he stepped off at 8.4 kilometres Nick, right on his heels, was still full of running, and picked up speed over the last mile to win in 29:50.71. Meanwhile, Niam Macdonald surprised many with a huge personal best in second of 30:06.94 just outside the qualification standard. Chris Dryden ran a wily race to finish third, also with a personal best of 30:38.46 passing several of the runners who had tried to go with Hamish's pace early. Before tonight no one had run under 30 minutes at Newtown Park since Paul Smith at the National Champs in 1993, where he ran 28:43.63.
Further back Keiron Sexton, Craig Kirkwood and Evan Cooper paced a large group including several juniors who were all seeking the World Cross Country qualifying time of 32.05. When Evan stepped off the track at 8km the pack was still together and also picked up speed. Sam Tanner of Tauranga went to the front of the pack and strung it out. He was the fastest junior, and fifth overall in 31:26.86, but closely followed by Auckland City's Alexander Hull in 31:34.02 and Wellington Olympic's Toby Gualter in 31:41.25. All three now have the qualification standard to be considered for the World Cross Country team.
