The first “road” event of the year is on packed trail rather than tarmac and is a return to 4 person relays. Those under 16 run 1 lap of 2.5km while those in the senior teams run 2 laps. All entrants need to put in their estimated 5km time so that the race organisers can work out the handicaps. Don’t be too conservative with your times – base it on a good run in good conditions.
The location is Lake Roto Kohatu at the top end of Sawyers Arms Rd, and there is a bit of a walk (about 1km) from the parking area to the start/finish line. Allow 15 minutes for this. The first teams will start at 12:30pm with the handicaps dictating the time the faster teams start. The actual start time of your team will be published before race day.
When: Saturday 27th July
Where: Lake Roto Kohatu, Sawyers Arms Rd
Remember: No dogs please
Because handicaps need to be worked out entry for this event is required sooner than usual. All entries must be in by 10:00pm Sunday 14 July.
Senior Teams in Running Order
Start times will be advertised once the handicaps are worked out.
