Back from holiday and lots of emails with finishes and a record to add to the Hillary Trail Honours Board which is awesome. I think I have captured all of them but let me know if I have missed someone.
The record was of course Steve Neary – the first unsupported Double Hillary! Awesome running Steve!
Hopefully by now you also know that my event THE HILLARY is all go on the 29th March 2014. I’m putting up a free entry to the current fastest male and female as at 2 weeks before the event. This is valid for for runs traveling the same way as the event (Arataki to Muriwai). Currently this is Nelson Myers-Daly 8 hours 44 and Vicky Plaistowe 11 hours 02. This will be a standing incentive each year!
The event will not count for honours board titles because it is a few km longer – At 80km it includes additional km at the start and finish and also the race has to use the Zion hill as we are not allowed to use the Pararaha/Karakare sand dunes. The event is also limited to 100 doing the full course as set by Auckland Council for this trial year. Entries will open at the end of the month.
