Overall Points System for 2016 XC & Road Interclub Season
Last year we awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in each age group for Overall Interclub Series Points.  Due to the popularity of these awards, we're doing this again for our 2016 Cross Country and Road Season.  For more details on the overall points system and The Vosseler Shield being held on Saturday 21 May click here
Kids XC Series - Next event @ Upper Hutt Sunday 29 May
Book by this Sunday in time for personalised race bib 
Just a quick reminder that the next Kids Cross Country Series event is being held at Trentham Memorial Park, Upper Hutt on Sunday 29 May.  

For those who have already registered you'll receive a personalised race bib on the day.  For others who don't want to miss the deadline, you have until this Sunday to register in time for your child to recieve the personalised bib for the Upper Hutt event.

We have 400 entered already. We'd love to reach that 500 mark so please help spread the work.  You might want to get a few friends together and enter a team (3 or 4 in a team in the same year level).  It's a great way to get more kids onto the podium.  Just email Rama on with the team name and team members, or enter these details when you sign up.

Hope to see you at the Upper Hutt event.  You can register at
