Andrew Reese Memorial Relay

The new location in Rangiora was due for its first outing last year but events led to the inaugural efforts of the North Canterbury club being cancelled, so it will be a new experience for everyone this year on the 12th June.

The 4 x 5 km relay for Masters and Seniors, and 4 x 2 km for Juniors is the familiar format used here though distances are ‘guides’. It looks like these legs might be slightly longer, but a lot faster than the sandy terrain of the Lionel Fox.

Details of the event can be found here. Parking is on Millton Ave – drive through Rangiora on Ashley Rd towards the river and look for signs.

Senior & Masters12:45 pm

A Royal Derby

What better way to celebrate the Queen’s birthday than a romp around our very own Ascot. A fun event for all comers, you get to choose whether you want to run 2.5k or 5k. It’s a great chance to put all those family arguments to bed – who actually IS the fastest? Your own handicapping system might help even up the odds. Our winning prize was always breakfast in bed – no wonder I’m on the heftier side.

All family members are invited along with our registered runners to sign up for this race and the Sumner Running Club will cover entry costs. Information about race day can be found here with the only condition being you need to be 10 or over to run the 5k.

You never know who might pop in for a visit!

Rawhiti Cross Country Races 2021

Saturday 22nd May 2021

Entries close Monday 17th May 7pm

The Rawhiti Cross Country Races incorporating the Jane Paterson Cup caused controversy last year when Sumner weren’t awarded the cup despite having the fastest 6 man team. This year we can confirm that masters as well as senior athletes will count for the open race so it would be good to “defend” the trophy this year. All the information and history of the event can be found here.

This year there is a short course option available for all over 18 runners. This is an Open race of 4.5km which you can choose to do if you don’t fancy the longer distance of your age grade race. Just select this on the form and we will enter you in that.
