Twilight Rogaines in Christchurch, New Plymouth

Christchurch has announced its first after-work rogaine, which should be a hit with the city's endurance-sport population. It will be a 3-hour event on Wed 22 Oct on the Port Hills.

The event will start and finish at Rapaki Valley carpark at the end of Hillsbrough Road. Registration is from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, with maps given out at 6:30pm. Everyone will then have half an hour to plan their route, before a mass start at 7.00pm. After finishing at 10pm, there will be a brief prize giving and supper. The cost is $12 per competitor.

The entry fee suggests a higher level than "shoestring"; mind you some of the pioneering Wellington shoestrings did provide saussies afterwards! Details on the web at or enquiries to Chris Forne.

And barely had the electrons dried on the above story but another afterwork series was announced, this time in New Plymouth. Egmont OC will do 3 mini rogaines prior to Christmas, kicking off at 6pm Wednesday 29 October and ending at 9pm. The start of this one is at 31 Tokomaru Street, New Plymouth. You can get more info from Rob Newbrook.
