On Saturday three teams travelled to Rotorua, for the Red Stag Redwoods Forest Relay.
This a 5x5 kilometre offroad relay, which brings teams from all over the North Island to race against each other, as well as providing some club competition among their own teams.
This year our women’s team was placed second in a strong field, a result all were pleased with, as well as winning the president’s shout of some drinks later on in the season.
Richard Orr was the fastest male runner in a time of 19.43 and Anne Marie Scott taking the fastest female time in 22.46. Club results were: Masters Men: D Taylor 25.08, G Vallen 22.08, R Orr 19.48, R Feaver 24.01 G Williams 22.55.
Masters Men B team: V Parker 29.55, G Ralph 27.02, G Caddie 32.48, L Morley 32.56, M Levers 27.54.
Masters Womens: A M Scott 22.46, J Brady 29.15, D Jenkins 27.04, P Stitchbury 25.38 Gill Hampton 28.47.
This Saturday the club is hosting the Thames Valley Road Champs from the Wairakau Hall. Members are asked to bring a generous plate for afternoon tea.
Racing starts at 12.30pm.
