A team of 20 of our best runners competed recently in the National Championships in Taupo, running a beautiful, yet challenging course. The Year 9 and Juniors completed a 3 km course and the Seniors a 4km course and the field sizes were huge with between 100 and 130 in each race, with fast starts the order of the day.
We had some outstanding results in all age groups:
- Olivia Page (17th Year 9 Race),
- Penelope Salmon (7th Junior Race),
- Natalya Carter (13th) and Chelsea Oliver (17th both in Senior Race).
Our teams achieved fantastic results as follow;
- Senior 3 and 6 person teams – 1st Place
(Natalya Carter, Chelsea Oliver, Sofia Parini, Charlotte Carter, Isabella Morton, Lucy Burrell)
- Year 9 Girls 3 person team – 4th Place
(Olivia Page, Madeline Brill, Alice Hopkinson)
Well done to all who competed and a special thanks to Tony O'Hagan, Coach, and Ali Feeney, Manager for their support at this event.
