Tusk Trophy at stake in ‘Trot without your Clock’

The Maitai Valley Road is Sunday’s scene for the annual NBS Nelson Striders Half Marathon and 10km with 115 runners and walkers entered.
The unique event has all estimating their finish times, and then without watches on the out and back course, the closest are rewarded on their finish time difference.
At stake in the Half is the infamous Boars Jaws – a.k.a Trevor Ruffell Tusk Trophy in remembrance of the 1994 ‘Maitai Incident’ when a band of Striders were set upon by an agitated wild boar.
Late entries will be taken at the Branford Park start/finish line. Start times and all pertinent details are on nelsonevents.co.nz
