We are very excited to announce a new event on the Wellington Athletics Calendar
The Agency Group 10k Invitational

7.00 pm – 10000 metres – The Agency Group race
Venue : Newtown
This will be a select field of 30 runners from all over NZ with pacemakers including Hamish Carson and the aim ( weather depending!) of running some very extremely fast times. There is even talk of some athletes looking to run under 30 mins that has not been seen in Wellington for over 25 years!
Along with this there will be the cream of NZ Junior runners looking to run a qualifying times for World XC Champs.
After the main race we will look to run 2 more 10k races where runners can look to run fast times.
As well as this there will be a BBQ and the bar will be open.
The Facebook event that has been set up has got 160 people confirmed or interested in it! https://www.facebook.com/events/277564186405626/
Online entry information for all 3 races will be posted next week on the AW web page.
Once again thanks to Stephen Day and Nick Hospool for driving this event and Carl Hasting form The Agency Group for kindly offering to sponsor the event that we hope will become a regular fixture on our calendar
