National Road Relays

Saturday, October 4, 2014

- $250

The National Road Relays is over the Takahe to Akaroa course in Christchurch again this year. The race starts at the Sign of the Takahe and follows the traditional route through Governors Bay, Gebbies Valley, Little River and Duvauchelle to Akaroa. The Junior Relay, Open Masters over 60 and Corporate/Social grade will start at Allandale (start of lap 2 Senior Race) and finish at
Cooptown (End of lap 5 Senior Race)

We are planning a similar format to last year…

  • Charter bus from Hamilton to Auckland on Friday 3rd October
  •  Flights from Auckland to Christchurch direct
  • Accommodation at the Lincoln Motel (all of us staying there together this year)
  • Saturday night dinner at Lincoln University
  • Flights back to Auckland on Sunday morning (5th)
  • Charter bus back to Hamilton

We are still working through the costs and the level of subsidy for this year, but as this is the third year that it has been in the South Island (and will be back down there again next year) we have to be a little cautious with the level of club expenditure for this one event. There will be a club subsidy again, but may not be as heavily subsidised as last year.  Full payment for the NRR flights is 19th August
 
The teams that we are looking at sending to the Road Relays will be:

Junior Women (6 runners)
Junior Men (6 runners)
Masters Women 35+ (8 runners)
Masters Men 40+ (8 runners)
Composite Team

For those who are interested in taking part, now is the time to start putting yourself forward for selection as we move towards the road race part of the season. We will be expecting people to race in at least 2 of the selection races below:

Sanitorium Hill Race
WAIBOP Road Champs

Sweeney Cup
Red Stag Relays
Hawks Road Champs
