Olympic was represented by Mike W(akelin), and Matt, Hayden and Barry Prosser. They came home with two firsts.
A 1300m climb for men and vet men starting with 7km of gentle forestry roads to the others’ start, then a 900m climb in 7km to finish at the top of Mt. Campbell (Motueka). Hayden had a bad flu which really stuffed him when he hit the main climb. His time probably reflects a really awful morning for him. Matthew gave Barbara palpatations with a close battle with 2nd, only the two of them beat Melissa (women and juniors ran together). Barry ran like Barry, not as good as he would have liked but still in one piece, and a good result for someone who hasn't run all year due to injury.
