Brad takes out 3rd in Sydney:10 in a hot field and there’s an added bonus to the podium placing. Emily Brichacek takes out the women’s race, while Ben St Lawrence made a surprise appearance to take out the event. He gives a blow by blow account of the week leading in and the race itself.
Perfect conditions for today’s @run_nsw #Sydney10 NSW Road Champs. It was a tight battle up the front with @edgoddard3k @michaelroeger1 @crokes and myself still together inside the final 600m after Ed strung out the rest of the field with some strong front-running. Crokes made a drive for home as we approached the stadium, I was able to just sneak in front through the tunnel and hold on over the final 300m on the track for a win in 29:46 with Roegs claiming second and Crokes 3rd. Also a great day out for @run_crew – so many awesome runs including plenty of PBs and a whole lotta fun. Thanks to ANSW for a fantastic morning and @edgoddard3k for the pics. #RunNSW #RunCrewRoad #RunCrew
