Runners and walkers get a chance to kick-start their new year resolutions into action on Sunday January 11th in the NBS Nelson Striders Half Marathon and 10km.

The unique event celebrates Maitai Dam caretaker, Trevor Ruffell and his gallant rescue of a band of Striders back in 1994 whom were set upon by an agitated boar whilst out for a Sunday run up the valley.

With his bare hands Ruffell manhandled the beast, drowning it in the river and what remains, the Boar’s Jaw, has become one of the most sought after trophies on the local athletics scene.

Crocodile Dundee eat your heart out .... a Nelson man became a true hero on Sunday when he saved a group of joggers being chased by a frenzied boar.

Maitai Dam caretaker Trevor Ruffell downplayed his courageous feat when contacted by the Mail this morning, but admitted he drowned the 54kg boar in the Maitai River with his bare hands.

The escapade began when seven members of the Nelson Striders Club were enjoying an early morning jog through the Maitai Valley and spied a wild boar on the opposite side of the river.
