Race 6 (22-28 November) - 5km Distance
41 entrants again this week spanning 5 regions of New Zealand, great to see the Taranaki contingent doubling in size!
At the front of the fleet, Matt Anderson has laid down a strong challenge with a blistering 28 minute time, to take the lead in front of Fergus Dunlop and Scott Keon, who continues to lead the Senior Master pack. Ange McKee remains the one to beat in the ladies, although Marlene Bergh has closed the gap considerably over last week. Ron Oranje from Otago has clearly been training hard and bettered his last 5km time by several minutes, nearly making it into the top ten overall this week – great effort!
So folks, it’s back to 3km for this week, which should feel like a sprint after last week’s exertions. For those of you who’ve been with the series since the start, this is your chance to try and improve on your initial performance. Have fun planning your race…!
