Gilchrist Rose Bowl School of Origin XC

June 9, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

This is run in a popular School of Origin format (with teams based on what high school you did or do attend), and welcomes all secondary school athletes as well as members.

This event has been around for over 6 or so years now. This is how it works. Each runner is put in a team according to which high school they went to and their age. To make a team, there needs to be at least 3 from the same school. In the event of insufficient numbers, teams are made up based on Super rugby franchise areas  ie chiefs, Hurricanes etc, and international.  All runners are counted in results.

Race options are either 4 or 6 km. After the race, your result will be run through the highly technical and complicated World Masters Association age grade calculator.

The team with the highest average score will be announced the as the winners.

Club rooms doors open at 12.30
Pick teams and then Jog/drive to lake for 1.30
1 and 2k option for kids at 1.45pm
4 and 6k for adults at 2pm
Bring a plate for afternoon tea
