Race 1:

Race 2:


Sunday 30th April 2017

Sunday 11th June 2017

 

This event caters for everyone; Young, Old, Male, Female, Big, Small, Fast or Slow. We have family sections.

The distances are all achievable with the run/walk in the enclosed area of the Ashburton A&P Showground's, while the bike ride is an out and back ride on Seafield Road.  No hills and very little traffic makes this such an appealing event.

The distances are Run/walk on a mix of surfaces, grass, and seal, the first run/walk is a 2 or 4 laps of the 1.25 kilometer circuit, the bike ride is 10 and 20 kilometres of flat easy road biking with the last run/walk an easy 1 or 2 lap of the 1.25 kilometres depending if you’re doing the short or long course.

This is a great spectator course for husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or any other friend to come along and watch.

Prize giving this year will be in front of the grandstand approximately 15 minutes after he last competitor has finished. We have some fantastic spot prizes again this year, we’ll have a BBQ for those that feel a bit peckish after the race and refreshments can be purchased, sorry no alcohol can be sold.

 

2017 is our 12th year of this Great event.
