Marlborough Harrier Club hosted the Nelson Clubs to a cross country event at Pelorus on Saturday. It had been some time since we had Nelson over by invitation. Very pleasing to see approximately 40 people turn up for this mini event.
The event was held as a non-competitive event but we all know when Harriers get together there will always be this element of competitiveness. Knowing this it was decided between Marlborough and Nelson we take the times of 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th and last from each side of the hill, add them up and it is the least total accumulated times that wins.
Marlborough came in with 5 hours 31 minutes 18 seconds.
Nelson came in with 6 hours 4 minutes 20 seconds.
This made Marlborough the winner.
In the words of David Bendell “Great run on Saturday – pleasant conditions -
Caught up with some of my harrier friends from Nelson/Waimea. A tough run up to the “trig” and around a loop, albeit around 7kms but I was still out for 1hour 23 minutes very pleasant thro lovely beech/punga forest. Good solid run with a good catch-up over afternoon tea.”
