Remember this from 2020? Well Dave Fitch had such a ball disqualifying everyone last year he wants to do it again. A 5k handicap race based on your predicted time. If you are more than 3.25% quicker than you say, don’t expect to be on the podium. That’s the qualifying limit to have a counting time. (For those who need some easier maths, it’s about 2 seconds per minute).
When: Tuesday 21st December
Time: first starts 5:40pm
Where: Hagley Park (same course as the 5k series)
This event is open to all club members, whanau, and friends. Afterwards we will be heading to Volstead on Riccarton Rd for some refreshments – just a short walk from the park.
Entries need to be in by 7:30pm Monday 20th December.
Time to reflect on the achievements of the year both on and off the race course. It has been another great year of results as individuals and as teams culminating in victory for our Masters Men and Masters Women 50+ in the Takahe to Akaroa Road Relay.
Sumner finished runner up in the Club of the Year competition in 2021, which indicates how well our runners did given it isn’t a focus for the club but a bi-product of members wanting to get out there and run. El Presidente Dave Fitch will give us a rundown on those results, probably without the accompaniment of a heavy metal band this year – mind you Carmine might turn up with a guitar…Come along for a relaxed catch-up with your fellow club members. Members get a $10 subsidy on their meal. Partners welcome.
