Sunday 21 April 2024
Christchurch Marathon
Christchurch


The Christchurch marathon doubles as the New Zealand Half Marathon champs and is a traditionally fast race. A good course to attempt a PB which a few club members are hoping to do. Good luck down South!

Saturday 27 April 2024
Shaw Baton Cross Country Relays
Battle Hill


Barely a few weeks into the season and we hit the first inter-club race. Get those spikes dusted off! This one is a team relay, only 2km, and check out the variation in terrain - thick grass, gravel tracks, log jumps, a water jump over mostly flat to undulating track with one sharp uphill & downhill. A great race to kick off the season.

Details on the event are on the interclub race page

Novice & Presidents Race
Steve Plowman Trophy
Bob Clark Memorial Trophy for walkers
Clubrooms, Trentham Memorial Park


Slightly earlier in the season this year and plenty on the line today. The Novice and Presidents is a fantastic race for all abilities. Juniors have the Steve Plowman and Trentham United trophies up for grabs, and walkers have the Bob Clark Memorial trophy to compete for.

Further details here.

The Rotorua Marathon (inc NZ champs) and New Zealand 5km Road Championships are also on this weekend though all serious runners will be at TMP running for glory!



Saturday 11 May 2024
University Relay & Wellington Mixed Cross Country Relay
Chocolate Walk
Mackays Crossing


The second inter-club of the year takes place over on the Kapiti Coast. The University Cross Country Relay and Chocolate walk tops out at 3.5km for U20 and older so very achievable for a newer runner. The shorter course means there is always someone nearby to try and catch. It's a great little grassy/gravel course with short punchy hills - good fun.

Something new this year - the race will double as the Wellington Mixed XC Relay. Further encouraging everyone to give it a go, should be an interesting race.

Vosseler Shield
Mt Victoria


The Vosseler Shield - the last race of the Autumn classics and the first race on the inter-club calendar for those registered as a competitive athlete. A very tough race on Mt Vic. Last year the wet weather made the first mud section horrendous to navigate being on an awkward slope, but it made for some fantastic video opportunities for spectators. Let's hope for more of the same! Check out our inter-club page for info on this long standing classic race.
