Anthea Stacey finished 1st in the 18-24 age group and was the second age grouper to cross the finish line behind Alise! She finished with a time of 04:58:38 (S:00:27:48, B:02:41:06, R:01:46:10). Absolutely amazing result from Anthea who has come back from injury to smash this race. Anthea hadn’t run at all in the weeks leading up to this race due to her injury so this was a very gutsy effort.

All in all, a great day at the office for the Elitesportz team, could not be more proud of our athletes!
