Wallace Shield Cross-Country Series: Race 3

Saturday 4th May 2024

Waimea Harriers Wallace Shield Race 3

Join us on Saturday 4 May at Moturoa/Rabbit Island for the third and final race in our three-event series of 5km cross-country for runners and 3.4km for walkers. Juniors can choose 1 lap (1.7km), 2 laps (3.4km) or 3 laps (5km).

Race 3 is a handicap race based on times from the previous two races. The winner is the first across the line. The slowest competitors start first at 2:30pm with the next competitors going at intervals until finally the fastest competitor starts and tries their best to catch up!

Registration is at the “Old Domain” Picnic Area from 1:45pm. Arrive early to find out your designated start time!

Race briefing is at 2.20pm, race starts at 2.30pm.

Points are awarded at each event, although only members of Waimea Harriers who have participated in Races 1 and 2 of the series are eligible to compete for the coveted Wallace Shield.

Everyone and all abilities are welcome. Come and run for fun even if you haven't made it to the two previous events in the series.

Children & youth students can join the club for free.
