THOUSANDS RUN THE MINI-MOS
THE streets of Mosman were filled with thousands of runners on Sunday June 18 as part of the 35th annual Mini-Mos Community Fun Run & Fair.
Over 2500 runners pounded the pavement in the 2k, 5k and 10k races in support of Mosman Public School and its nominated charities SeeBeyondBorders and Raise Foundation.
The Men’s 10k was won by Kevin Batt in 31:03 minutes, followed closely by James Nipperess in 31:15 minutes and James Tunbridge in 32:44.
“I knew it was going to be a tough day in the office. I went out hard,” Mr Batt said.
“It was very tough. The toughest course I’ve done I would say. The amount of hills!” Mr Nipperess said.
Commonwealth Games steeple chase qualifier Victoria Mitchell took out the women’s 10k in 36:43 minutes, followed by Anna White in 40:09 and Nadine Vecchio in 41:05.
Ms Mitchell jumped on a plane a few hours after her win to compete at the London World Championships.
“I just wanted to win. It’s a great course and a great community run.” Ms Mitchell said.
Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott ran his third consecutive Mini-Mos in 1:00:18.
