New Zealand Cross Country Champs Interclub Relay, Taupo


Now this is a very interesting one, a brand new event at the national champs - the inaugural interclub relay. Athletics NZ have decided to create a club based event to encourage those who did not qualify to represent their region. This looks very exciting and well worth getting some TUH members organised into teams.

Rhys Mair Memorial Trail Champs for Runners
King & Queen of the Mountain for Walkers
Clubrooms, Trentham Memorial Park


Runners hit one of our great trail options, Keith George Memorial Park for the club trail champs. Some technical single trail and sharp hill work, its a tough little course. We had our biggest turn out for this event yet. There were some great battles within the race, some folks pushing a little too hard taking tumbles in there. Nothing too serious but a good reminder that our backyard trails aren't to be underestimated.

Timed results are here.

Walkers pushed to the top of Riverstone Terrace, an unusual race being such a steep and long hill. Some close times within the group made for good racing.

King: Jon Roskvist
Queen: Steph Robinson

Saturday 11 June 2022
Dorne Cup
Clubrooms, Trentham Memorial Park


The second interclub Wellington championship event of the season - the Dorne Cup. Despite some rain and thunder in the days prior, the course wasn't all that bad. Certainly muddy in some sections but overall not attrocious and very runnable.

Novice & Presidents Races for Runners
Steve Plowman Trophy for U12
Bob Clark Memorial Trophy for Walkers
Clubrooms, Trentham Memorial Park


Another beautiful still day. I'm going to say it, winter still hasn't arrived! To be fair though, the course was slow in sections where recent rain and shadow is making the ground a little gluggy, and the stream was running a little higher.

Vosseler Shield
Mt Victoria, Wellington


The first Wellington region championship race of the season was held in glorious conditions on Mt Vic.
