Club News

Come along to hear the stories from our travelers 4 Oct 2017.

Pack run/walk, Alex Moore clubrooms, 7 October, 1:45pmFrom the clubrooms we can venture out and about.  The main reason for coming will be to hear the war stories from last week:

  • Around Rarotonga Relay: A tight knit group of Olympic walkers and runners made the trip again this year.  Esther George won the main women's event and Sherynne and Miles won their grades too.  Unfortunately there is indeed another statue...
  • Rotorua Road Relays: Six teams went away to enjoy the lights of Rotovegas.  Masters Women came away with the bronze medal and everybody with heaps of memories.
  • Waikaremoana Circuit: If it wasn't enough for people to take part in the relay a good number shot around Lake Waikaremoana on the way home.  As you do!

Social Contacts

There are a couple of active Facebook pages associated with the club.  If memory serves you need to be accepted to get access but that is not a big hassle.  A variety of semi organised runs at different levels, encouragement for summer track athletes, and celebrations of current (and some past) performances all turn up regularly.
