The third club day in a row! You guessed it, more pack runs and walks. Though the Wellington Cross Country Champoinships will be on tomorrow so could be a cruisy shake out for most.

Eric Putter Memorial Relay
Clubrooms, Trentham Memorial Park


Another classic Eric Putter Memorial Relay event - great turnout, the rain cleared, everyone was in good spirits, and the club captains very challenging predicted times lifted people's preformances. A bit of chaos pre-race as members tried to find their teams, a great way to meet our newer members and get everyone involved! Then the usual exasperation about how your predicted time was too fast, but true to form, many people lift their game and exceeded expectations. The whole club cheering everyone through the finish chute is fantastic too. What a great event for our club. Well done everyone for participating and making it the success it was. Big thanks to Rachel and Scott for organising the prize too.


The winning team was Team 8:
Taya Hines
Olivia Boyd
Isobel Franklin
Kevin Fink
David Hood
Josh Jordan
