National Road Relay Championships, Timaru Saturday, 6 October 2007

Olympic sent just a single team to the national road relays on Saturday however it was the most competitive team for several years.

The 65.2km relay was the demanding "Round The Gorges" course at Timaru, used for the first time for the national relays.

Our team, a combination of senior and masters men, was fourth in the open B grade (18th out of 47 overall), with a time of 4:04:36. This was just over a minute behind third B grade (Olympic Christchurch) and 33:30 behind overall winner Canterbury University.
