We will need club members to help set up the course beforehand and pack it away afterwards.

The first trophies of the year are up for grabs too - awarded to both race winners and handicap winners.


Membership registration

Thank you for your patience and apologies for registrations not being open.

Hopefully this will be up by the end of the weekend. This year, due to disruptions to the start of the season and missing out on fundraising due to the cancellation of the Shaw Baton Relay, we havestill been able to offer a discounted fee.

Recreational members will be eligible for all club races and the first two interclub relay races, on top of club training and Saturday pack runs.

In addition, competitive members will be able to enter Wellington Centre Road and XC Champs as well as running for a competitive team in the ANZ Road Relays, which will again be held in Feilding at the beginning of October.
