Team News 13.6.14

Hi guys!

How are you all? It has been great seeing many of you at Triathlons, Duathlons, Secondary Athletics and Cross Country and some club running events…..I am looking forward to see many of you on Wednesday at Halswell (course map, see: Primary Sports Canterbury XC Course Map 18.6.14, Primary, see: PSC XC Info- Primary and Intermediate information attached see: Intermediate XC).
I hope most of the Year 9s are off to the NZ Sec. Schools’ XC in Palmerston North next Saturday – all the best guys
BBQ for Ella – Lyn Miles has asked if we would like to run a BBQ for fund-raising on Wednesday. I thought we could do it for ELLA BENN (see  )- she has had a tough time and needs financing for lots io things for her treatment. If a group of you are keen to arrange a BBQ, please let me know and we can get it organised. I have a school BBQ if someone wanted to pick it up. I see the Mad Butcher has 60 sausages for $20 at present too….
IRXC2014 is coming up on Thursday 25 September….want to have a look at the course, see:
That’s all for now
See many of you on Wednesday

Hi guys

Hope you are all well. Just a few quick things.
NikiM1. World Marathon Challenge – this Sunday, 20 October – 2.30-4.33pm at Hillview Christian School Senior Campus – 125 Wilsons Road, St. Martins.
There are now 459 teams entered in this from countries all over the World and PSC CC Team has 31 athletes ready to take on the world (see team below).
2013 New Zealand Cross Country Champion, NIkki McFadzien, will lead the team off and run the first 195m with our team running the next 210 x 200m laps! Can team members please get to Hillview by 2.15pm at the latest (a reminder it is on the Senior side – opposite side of the road from our first team meeting) to get your race number and warm up – preferably 2.00pm if you can. Bring spikes, wear your POLO and bring snacks, drinks, and warm clothes for between laps. Please email me if you have any more questions. Cam we break the NZ (we hold it) and the World record? Please bring a donation towards Save the Children
2. Team Photos: These have now arrived and your copy is available for pick up. Karen Theobald has delivered some, I will give all the WMC runners theirs on Sunday and Lee Downie will have the rest at the Athletics Canterbury meeting on Saturday morning at Rawhiti Domain – please go see her at the University of Canterbury tent at the Northern part of the ground. After a couple of weeks I will get the rest and send them out. Just about all of you will actually get two photos due to a slight msihap with the couriers – the second one is free of charge but you may like to give our WMC team a donation towards Save the Children – either give it to Lee or to me on Sunday.
The team photos are also available for purchase online if you want, see:

Hi everyone

Well done to the Wellington team who won the Phil Costley Shield outright for the second time in the nine year history of the event. Some excellent team running and individual brilliance saw them win it by two points! One second and one place made all the difference and the shield could have been shared again!
 I hope you all had a great sleep last night! I sure did but I do miss you all! Thanks so much for a wonderful three days and a fantastic three months together!
I have attached the unofficial results from Thursday – see here: IRXC results 2013 – there ma y be a little fine-tuning – but they look good to me. If you do see any errors (sorry I can’t change your time or place!) please let me know.
Thanks again to you all for running so hard and representing your province with pride – you were a great bunch to take away. Many of you achieved your goals and many of you know you can even stretch yourself even further.
I will pass on more photos and links as they come to hand.
Thanks again also to our super parents and supporters and to our stunning management team!
Rest up and all the best to those involved in other sporting tournaments over the holidays.
Paul and Champ:)
