Central Leader - - NEWS -

Run­ners of all ages and abil­i­ties can test their strength and grit across cour­ses at Paku­ranga’s Lloyd Elsmore Park for the Ath­let­ics Auck­land X Run this month.

The cross-coun­try race will be held on May 11 and is open to non­reg­is­tered run­ners who can race or plod across dis­tances from 2 to 10 kilo­me­tres.

Race di­rec­tor Jackie Rus­sell says Ath­let­ics Auck­land wants to en­cour­age run­ners of all abil­i­ties to give cross­coun­try run­ning a go.

‘‘The runs are per­fect for se­ri­ous cross-coun­try run­ners as well as cross- fit train­ers, boot campers and any­one who loves hav­ing a bit of va­ri­ety in their run­ning rou­tine.’’

Races are bro­ken down into age groups from ju­nior to se­nior lev­els.

The course at Lloyd Elsmore Park is fairly flat and can be muddy in wet weather.

Get set: Ath­let­ics Auck­land is call­ing run­ners of all ages and abil­i­ties to take part in its May 11 cross-coun­try run.
