Message from Stu Cottom:

Just some basic details about the 2nd installment of our NN V Marlborough clash next week week (Sat 7th July) ‘The Parker’s Shield’ event near Cable Bay. For those that have taken part in this event before the venue/ course is changed slightly but is more or less the same in terms of distance & difficulty. The meet up venue for the start/finish is Cable Bay Adventure park approx. 3km along the road from SH6 towards Cable bay. Park there. be there by 2 p.m. racing starts at 2.30 p.m. (at this stage we’re looking at one start for all competitors) . It is a true cross country in that it is ran mostly on grass/ dirt trails, across paddocks, through a couple of creeks & is an undulating course. the course is approx. a 2 km circuit around the property with juniors & walking completing 2 laps, Vet women 3, open women & vet men 4, & open men 5. You will get wet/muddy feet & spikes could be worn although a section of gravel road (with a grass verge) for about 300m each lap! looking fwd to seeing some of you from over the Whangamoas next weekend.
