A number of UWA athletes were crowned champion of their category at Perth’s annual City to Surf last weekend (25/08).
Thousands of runners hit the pavement on a crisp morning for one of the WA running community’s most loved events.
UWA student athlete Ben Chamberlain was outright winner of the 12km event, finishing with a time of 36:57.60.
Ben returned to the 12km event after finishing second in the half-marathon at HBF Run for a Reason earlier this year.
Fellow UWA Athletics Club runner and UWA Sport staff member Keely Waters was the first female to cross the line, besting the 12km in 46:46.27.
UWA Research Fellow Dr Roberto Busi was the first in the 40-49 category to cross the line, finishing sixth overall.
Student athlete and UWA Run Club leader Sarah Hynes was the first to finish the Open Women’s 4km, with a time of 14:35.15.
Another student athlete, Aidan Read, was not far behind finishing 25th in his category with a time of 15:27.30.
It was another fantastic event for the WA runners who got up early to hit the pavement and raise important funds for charity.
