This event was held during Covid level 2 restrictions -- and with Auckland in level 3. In other words, there were no Aucklanders taking part (and numbers from other areas - particularly North Island provinces such as Wellington - were down). As a result, this event was renamed athe New Zealand Cross Country Challlenge, and wasn't a championship event.
Olympic Harriers sent two members -- Will Anthony and Deb Lynch. Will won the 6km MU18 race by 53 seconds, and Deb was fourth in the 10km SW race. Both very impressive results -- well done!
