Holloway Memorial Cross Country Races

The tradition of the Holloway Memorial, which originally used the Trentham racecourse, is being revisited with this year’s event being held at the Motukarara Race Course.  It has over the years, had a reputation as a “proper cross country” and the undulating 2km course on variable terrain at Motukarara will continue that tradition.  More on the history of the Holloway Memorial races can be read here.
