The 200m races saw Simone Small, Andrea Williams and Finn Yeats all win their age groups with Small and Williams also successful over 400m, a distance over which Stevie Paine won the women's 20yrs title in a slick 59.89. Daniel Anstis won his AWD (athletes with disability) events over both 200m and 400m and Tony Price won the men 55yrs crown over 3000m.
