See you next Sunday (15th) for our Annual Rangitumau Run. Usually run in February, it is now the feature race to end the GR series before the ACM Road Championships. Join us for a BBQ even if you aren’t competing. (Full details under events)
Start times and an alphabetical list attached. If you are not on the list we would still love to see you and can give you a time in advance or on the day.
Over 40 people ran or walked the lime trail course today in wonderful sunshine. Well done to those of you who took on that hill twice!

It seemed to be a night for breaking records with the annual hill run in Memory of John. The most competitors (39), the fastest time (well done Darius), the most people back to the MacDonald’s for pizza and best of all, an impressive contingent of John’s family amongst the competitors and revellers. An excellent night, John would have approved.
Mark Jerling has posted his great photos from Sunday. If you want high resolution copies for printing, you can make a donation to ACM.

Great to see so many at the Rewanui run today. A bit chaotic at the start so there may be the odd mistake in the results.
