In an exciting finish, Russell Dessaix-Chin took out first place at the Hidden Half Marathon at Lake Gillawarna on Sunday, after trailing behind Matthew Cox by over a minute for most of the race. 
It was not until the last kilometre that Russell managed to take Matthew and retain the lead.  Earlier in the race, Isaac Serem Kibiwot and Chadi Elashkar were part of a four man group (pictured) which lead the race ahead of over 186 entrants in the half marathon, which doubled as the NSW State Half Marathon championships
Over 88 entrants took to the 5km Mayoral Run/Walk, with Mitchell Williamson taking out overall winner.
Beautiful Spring conditions and a great atmosphere ensured the enjoyment of all entrants.  See full results and photos.
