5. Port Hills U18 Cross Country Races Saturday 29 August
I am feeling tired but very inspired by all of you after tonight. Please note below details about if you need to be picked up on the way to Blenheim and the details of our first lead in race on 29 August. Note that next Thursday we will finish at 5.30pm or even 5.40pm…..it is going to be long and hard! Also see an invite for a long run this Sunday for the Year 7/8s…Read on…
What an awesome night of training tonight! We only had five runners away from the team of 83!!! Well done to everyone! The Year 6 Girls and the Year 7 Boys and Girls were all there and every other team only had one runner absent – great stuff! Great to welcome Art Aitken (Year 5 Boys) who has been overseas. It is also wonderful to see runners turning up to support their teams even when they are injured – that is fantastic. It is also super to see so many extra runners pushing us and lots of parents running! A big thanks to Phil Chapman from the Port Hills Club who helped set up the the Rim Run at the end. (see invite from Phil later)
