The Centennial Cup is an out and back 5k race which replaces the old Le Gaye race that started in Derwent St and included the big hill on Beach St that took you over into Owhiro Bay.  Both races are sealed handicap but as at the time of writing there are no published results – a bit disappointing really.  I suppose participants will have to wait for Api’s weekly newsletter for these.

Historically the Le Gaye was used to help pick teams for the Shaw Baton Relay, and because of this there was generally a good turnout   For the Centennial Cup I did wonder where some of the fast Scottish runners were but it seems that a few were preoccupied racing elsewhere, Waitarere Beach to be specific.  

The clubs Facebook page reported that Nick Horspool (32.40) and Tim Hodge (33.33) finished the Great Forest 10k in 1st and 2nd place respectively with new member Matt Bonner (35.42) in 3rd place.

Unfortunately the Facebook page did not mention Niam Macdonald’s 3rd placing in the half-marathon option in a time of  1.13.58. Full Great Forest results are here and hopefully Api will pick these results up for his weekly newsletter.
