Race report

Very wet in days leading up to the race, with huge puddles the day prior. Most water had drained for race day, with soft ground and mud for race day.
Slight error from a marshal, sending kids the wrong way and Travis was set to go the right way, so had to change direction and lost some ground, dropping back to 5th, before making way back up to 3rd.

First look at Taupo course. Nice course, rolling hills, great underfoot.
Travis found the course harder than he thought, some of those rolling hills are quite steep.

Race report

I can report the weather did not come to the party as it was raining (mostly lightly) for most of the day. Thus it was not the most auspicious start and possibly one reason why the fields were quite small. It was also Mother’s Day. Interestingly the kids did not seem to mind running in the rain and getting wet.

Lots of great results again, with the Men Under 20 team defending their 2020 win with another win this year.

Race report

After a Covid break in 2020, the Shaw Baton Relay at Battle Hill Farm Forest Park Park was back. The event consists of a 4×2km relay for the U12s and above, and a short scratch (non-relay) race for the U10s. The races are held on a traditional cross country course with rough terrain, hurdles, hills and water.

The conditions were excellent, dry underfoot and a gentle southerly. That didn't mean the course was easy, with several new jumps and hurdles added into the course this year.

The U10s race was hand timed
