Despite the current lockdown restrictions and the move to level 3 next week, the Takahe to Akaroa organizing committee are confident the race will go ahead. Last year they did an exceptional job in staging the event under level 2 conditions so hopes are high for the race to take place again this year. If all goes well it will remain the National Road Relay Championships which always makes for an exciting race in all grades.
Annette has been working on putting together a Masters Women 50+ team, and Helen and Jarrod are working on compiling the other teams. Sign up below for the October 2nd event.

The next event on the calendar is the Canterbury Road Champs. For some it is a perfect course, easy to tick off your progress, others find that the U-turns at the end of each straight interupts their flow. Whichever matches you, you’ll get to experience it again on the 21st August at the traditional Landfill Road site. All information about the race can be found here and like the Cross Country champs, nomination forms for the Canterbury team to compete at the NZ Championships need to be filled out and handed in on the day. Last week we had 7 representatives in the Canterbury team at the National Cross Country in Dunedin – will we top that for the road champs?
