Club Day & ^King & Queen of the Mountain Race for Walkers (Walkers Ladder Event)

The fastest person on handicap was Anne Dry, who for the second year running beat the handicapper and claims the title of Queen of the Mountain. Her winning margin was, however, reduced from 6 minutes to 2:30. The fastest male was Stuart Hood, who was also the last to start. Stuart beat Jon Roskvist by just 8s to claim the title of King of the Mountain. In fact, the handicapper did such an accurate job, 14 out of the 16 walkers finished within only a couple of minutes of each other. Although I suspect, one walker might find a more severe handicap time for her future races See below for individual results.

Name Finish Time Actual Time Position
Anne Dry 0:50:57 0:44:42 F1 Queen of the Mountian

Wellington XCC, Waikanae, Plus A Judged, B Scrutinised Graded Race Walks (Interclub Event)

With the bizarre weather at Waikanae today, we really were pretty lucky to get all the races completed before the massive hail storm set in. We were very lucky to have Chris Homan there to set up the Trentham tent - thanks Chris. The new course proved tough with the usual flat section around the paddock replaced with a tough hilly section. The course was also reported to be approximately 200m per lap longer. We took out several top ten places including a shared fastest time in the B11 race. Once again our junior runners did Trentham proud.

Dorne Cup, Trentham Memorial Park (Interclub event)

The North Face 100

This is an extreme 100km mountain race that takes place in the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia. With limited checkpoints at 18km, 38km, 54km, 65km and 89 km, competitors really do have to fend for themselves carrying most of their required drink and food as well as a substantial amount of clothing. Temperatures in the Blue Mountains can get extrememly cold and it was only 5 degrees C on race day. Michael Beaumont completed the course in 12:12:40 and finished in 25th place overall and 21st in the Open Male category. His sister Jean (not a member) also did extremely well, finishing in 12:43:20 and placing 5th overall female. A tremendous, if not slightly crazy, effort Michael - well done. Now put your feet up and relax!.

The Chocolate Race Results
The Chocolate Race is a handicapped event whereby the person who wins is the one closest to their predicted time. Whilst Stuart Hood had the fastest time (a very impressive time of 34:40), he was too fast for his predicted time. An awesome effort Stuart. Andrew Paton also did a very good time of 42:24 but again was too fast for his predicted time.

*^Novice & President Races plus Steve Plowman Trophy for U11 PLUS Club Day (Ladder Event)

It was the perfect conditions for the Novice & Presidents races today. Ground surface was hard and fast (supposedly?) and the sun was shining. The creek crossing was a bit tricky this year after some recent bull-dozing work which made it a real cross-country race! Congratulations to Jacob Elloit, Andrew Paton, Brett Wilby, Kevin Thomson, Teresa Cox and Kim Hammer-Hurst for winning trophies on handicapped time. And also congratulations to our first walker home, Peter Stewart.
