Club Day

The start of winter, could be cold, wet and muddy - cross country season glory! Today will be pack runs and walks - varying distances and speeds but always regrouping every few km's. A great chance to swap war stories about Vosseler last weekend.

Dorne Cup
Trentham Memorial Park

The Dorne Cup - a winter cross country on our home ground and the second race on the inter-club calendar for those registered as a competitive athlete. This can be a very fast race if the conditions aren't too muddy, and if it is muddy a tough combination of speed and power. Check out our inter-club page for info on this long standing classic race.

Vosseler Shield
Mt Victoria

Compared to last year's mud-fest, this year the Vosseler Shield was held in far more pleasant conditions. Having said that, the race takes no prisoners and there was bloody knees and legs aplenty. Post race commentary showed everyone had a tough day out there but I saw smiles on some folk who nailed PB's and achieved good results. Well done everyone.

Trentham United fielded the most teams of all the regions clubs with 15! Trentham United runners bagged five victories, all in the juniors - Taya Hines in Women U10, Nikos Kapoutsos in Men U12, Madison Wos in Women U16, Callum Wos in Men U18, and Max Poland in Mens U20.

The whole club had great success at this years Vosseler as we placed second in the Barry Everitt Plate. We have never placed higher than fourth and are typically fifth so this was a stand out result that everyone contributed to! Check this out.

I'll also make a special mention of our U10 boys and girls. We have a great group coming through which is exciting to see for the club. I hope you all enjoyed your blast around this famous Mt Vic race and we look forward to seeing you enjoy and develop your running.

University Cross Country Relays
Chocolate Walk
Mackays Crossing

Another fantastic turn out for Trentham United. The weather has been fairly good so the course was hard packed and quite fast. There was a great vibe on coast with the music pumping and everyone enjoying the racing. Our open relay team scored a fantastic win, and our U10 boys and girls are running extrememly well! Exciting for the club.

The brand new format of mixed teams was trialed and it seemed to be very successful. Within that, our club captain Stephen further opted to mix the abilty of most Trentham teams rather than ranking teams from fastest. With so many competitors I have just list our 3 highest placings.
