6.30 mass start

Lions Roar, Newtown
(Bring a torch, a pen or pencil and a timing device)

Event description

Bring a torch. Mass start 6.30, briefing 6.25, maps from around 6.10 pm. Finish 7.30.

Question and Answer format, so bring a pen or pencil.  Also as there is a time limit of 1 hour, bring a timing device.

A 1 hour Pmax around the reserves of Newtown from around the zoo, through Melrose Park and out to Mt Albert.  Teams of 2-5 preferred, but you can run as a single but with a 10% points penalty - but no penalty on enjoyment!

Shoe choice:  Terrain varies from steep pine forest to tarmac footpaths, but is mostly running on earth/clay-based tracks.  Road running should be at a minimum.
