START & FINISH
All Club Runners, club parents, and volunteers can participate in the 4-leg "closest to estimated time" relay. Legs are of varying distances so suitable for everyone. All laps start and finish on our world-class athletics arena right here on home turf in Christchurch.
Gather together a team of four from your club to enjoy this relay event. See if you can arrange it so they will all run about the same time - perhaps mix some older runners with some kids.
Then join us for the presentation of the "Club of the Year", the Champion Runners of the season trophies, our stalwarts awards and various other trophies.
A free sausage in bread for all participants.
Cash bar operating
There is are some rolling banks around the hub, some of which we may be able to access as part of the run course. The final relay route is still being planned as construction and building work is still being completed at Ngā Puna Wai.

Team Relay Details
There is a four person team relay for runners and a two person relay for walkers.
The aim in each event is for the team to predict their overall time and then try to match this without wearing a watch.
The winning team is the one closest to their initial prediction.
The run relay event will have runners run 3 x 2km laps, then the final runner will finish by running the 1 mile around the track.
The walk relay will have 2 legs - 1 x 2km and then the final walker going for a mile walk around the track.

ESTIMATING YOUR TEAM TIME
All teams are required to estimate each runners leg time and this will be used to generate a total time for the team. If your team is a bit faster you will be set off behind others to ensure we have an exciting finish.
The winning team is the team who gets closest to their estimated time, so be realistic.
