Cross Country Series April 19th 2015 Visit our website for the latest news, information & results http://acm.kiwi.nz/running Well Done! Last week 9 year old Jacob Day won Junior Grade, showing that he can run well above his age group. A future club champ in the making? Last weekend more than 300 athletes from 42 countries raced at the International Association of Ultra-runners 24-Hour World Championship in Turin, Italy. The photo shows Graeme Butcher looking fresh at the start before he completed 188.9km. Butch finished 111th in a field of 179 men, the NZ men's team 24th of 34 and the NZ women 18 of 28. The club was well represented in the local Mountain Duathlon on 29th March. Derek Cox edged out Dominic Green to win the Men’s long course. In the women’s races, Franky Spite won the long course and Sue Bankier won the short course. School holidays and other events resulted in a smaller field than usual for the first race of the Cross Country season. While its great to see so many familiar faces, new participants would be warmly welcomed. Bring a friend next time! Tuesday Night Training (Incorporating Butch’s Boot Camp & Chu’s Day Ramblers) When: 5.30pm every Tuesday Where: By the church on the corner of Totara St & Te Ore Ore Rd.
