2014 National Road Relays: Takahe to Akaora
Congratulations to everyone who took part in the National Road Relays. Although there were a few hiccups with the teams placement in an inappropriate grade and Bev's injury, all in all it was a very successful event. We look forward to the Nationals next year which will be held in Christchurch again.
RESULTS – KING and QUEEN of the Mountain, Wednesday 23 October 2014
This race up the road from Chelsea Sugar on a time trial basis (random starting order, five second intervals) has a good history, the first event being held in 1994. This year the King is Greg, the Queen Camille, the Prince Isaac, Princess Natasha and the fastest walkers Murray (m) and Daniella (w). Our King, Greg, has been remarkably consistent over this period. The best time over the distance is 4:26 by Paul Gallop but we are not certain that the start and finish points used are identical to today.
