|Lachlan Haitana winner of U20 Men's race|
Nick Horspool who led the charge of Scottish singlets for most of the race was 2nd while NZ Mountain Running representative Daniel Jones 3rd.
My first thought was that today's win was Russell's revenge for the cross country champs at Grenada North where he came 2nd to Hospool.
My second mulling was that Scottish with 10 runners home in the first 12 are going to be hard to beat at the NZ Road Relay Champs. And I am not even sure if everybody was there.
My third deep thought was that Isaac Murphy (WHAC) is running particularly well at the moment having done well at the NZ cross country champs in Auckland a few weeks ago. And lo and behold Brian Garmonsway.(Trentham United) and Chris McIlroy (Scottish) are back.
And my final point is that Athletics Wellington need to see if it can find a better course than Wainuiomata.
