Saturday, 6 Jul 2019, 10:00 to 12:00: Trentham 10km Walking Race 2, General Motors Course, Trentham ×
Updated 12 May 2019.

Trentham 10km Race 2
A fully judged 5km and 10km races over the General Motors course at Trentham, including a B category.

Entry fee $10

All judged races will have a B Division for walkers that do not have a legitimate race walking technique. The Race Walking Judges will scrutinize walkers in the B Division race, to ensure that although they do not straighten their knees there is no loss of contact, and to make sure walkers are not running or “creeping” and gaining an advantage. If they are judged to be gaining an advantage the judges will issue cautions and red cards as in the A Division and the race organisers may decline to include them in the race results.

Saturday, 27 Jul 2019, 13:00 to 16:00: Olympic Harriers Club cross country champs, Pony Club, Boom Rock Road, Ohariu Valley ×
Updated 1 Apr 2019.

Club cross country champs. Races for all ages from juniors through to masters.

We are returning to where club champs were held back in the day.  The course will be different from the Grand Memorial, based around 1.8 km loops that will include a bit of a hill and fewer streams. The kids run a reduced 1km lap as we take the hill out for them. There is a trophy in each age group for both the winner and handicap winner, plus second and third get recorded with certificates - so it's all on! 

Please bring a plate for the afternoon tea at the clubrooms after the races. 

Be aware there may be no parking at the Pony Club paddocks due to wet ground, so parking will probably beon the road - take care as it is narrow in places.
