On Saturday the 9th of April, 81 club members turned out for the Centennial Cup, running or walking along the new (modified) course starting on the Parade at Island Bay. The course was shortened due to roadworks for repairing the seawall. We had 57 members competing in the 5km, 14 members in the walk and 10 J Teamers racing each other.
Emily Solsberg won the Centennial Cup in 18:17. Dougal Thorburn was the fastest male in 14:33 and Jess Kikstra was the fastest female in 18:16. It was great to see 4 Junior Woman competing at the event.
David Lonsdale reports the Walker's Results:
Here are the results from to-day’s race at Island Bay.
I slipped up with Maryanne’s handicap and she scored an easy win. Welcome back Maryanne and well done.
It was wonderful to see Peter drive over from Masterton and compete at 90.
