News And updates

Swede, Erik Olofsson had one hand on the ‘Boar’s Jaw’ and ready to board his plane back to Scandanavia after yesterday’s NBS Striders Half Marathon and 10km. He was two seconds outside his half marathon estimate but ahead of him and a mere solitary second adrift was Striders stalwart, Steffan Eden, rapt that Nelson’s sought after athletic trophy will now take pride of place on his Redwoods Valley mantel piece.

150 finished the 20th anniversary run or walk along the Maitai Valley Road.

Iwao Fujii had the honours in the 10km only two seconds astray while Jennifer Jones-Shuttleworth and Andrew Calverley were within five.

Jason Wright took a bit step into his running...
