Taitua Arboretum Relay 2014 Results

This year we changed the format and ran the event with teams of three, with each member of each team running a 3.7km lap of the hard packed pebble paths throughout the Arboretum.

Enough runners arrived to make up just 5 teams, but enough to have a good race. We hope to build this event bigger in the future, as it is an excellent venue for a challenging off-road race.

Balanced teams were selected with the aim of creating a close race and there were a few great races with-in the race as can be seen by the close times between Maureen, Meg, Dawn and Sandra, and also Kent, Lance and Glen. Sandra, Nathan and Sunil taking out top team, and Kent and Maureen fastest Individual Man and Woman.
