Compass Run 2018 Results

Report by Glenn Sexton

This year we decided to change the team format for this race and thought the easiest way was to split Hamilton and surrounds into 4 quarters. The logical east west boundary was the Waikato River and we drew a line from Whatawjata road across to 5th Av as the north south line.

Unfortunately the westies didnt come to the party with only 9 of the 27 lining up so we had to rearrange into north south to even teams up. Lance led the way for the first 3 k before being overtaken by Kent and visitor Josh Nyika, with Josh just hanging on for the win. In the ladies, Malesa started conservatively and finished strongly to win the Marshall Cup, with Charli Miller finishing 2nd  and also getting strong family competition from mum and dad.

To get the winning team we just added up each placing ie 1st palce got 1, 2nd place got 2. South scored 152 points, while north got 171 so a good win for South. This race has the Gichrist Rosebowl up for grabs and  we ran a complicated formula and consulted guest selector Gilbert McDonald to come up with Shona Dewson, Dot Larsen and Lance Brew as the winning 3 from the South team. Thanks to Glenn and Nick fro setting the course and Fiona for doing the timing.
