McAlpine Park's 5K course is one of the most famous in the region. It is notoriously fast and as we found out in 2014... also a little short due to course widening. That brought in a big change in 2015 when meet management added roughly 70m to the course. 

Here we look at how the "new" course has faired over the past decade. Any time from 2017, 2016, or 2015 is roughly 50-70m longer than previous times in the last decade. See where those performances rank below. Only 29 of the top 100 are from after 2015 and only one is in the top 30.
