Map Pukekura Park
Where: TSB STADUIM
FOLLOWED BY A BBQ / prizes/
How this works:
Form a team of 3 and enter either as a family ( families should be related ) or social
Social teams are a motely crew!
THERE ARE 3 legs:
Long 3.5 km
Short : 1.00 km
Medium 2.5 km
The event is really 3 sprint races linked together!
You must send me advance notice of your team- you have until Friday 29th November. I need to know: team name and Who is running which leg
email this information to me: firstname.lastname@example.org before 12 noon 29th November
If you want to run but cant form a team let me know what leg you would like to run and I will put you in a team.
There will be a mass start at 12 noon of all the long course runners. Followed by the short course and end with the medium course.
This is a social occasion so a BBQ will be running: we will supply sausages and bread and maybe something seasonal. You bring your favourite beverages.
THIS EVENT WILL BE POSTPONED IF IT IS RAINING AND RESCHEDULED FOR 15th DECEMBER

Which way did you go? To the hills for the points? or the gentler undulations for a nice walk (and jelly beans!!!). Thanks Paula & Tash (3 Girls...) for a great event ... even in the wet. Many teams making it back with a full card (none within 90 minutes) but even with the 7 minute penalty, Better Luck Next Time took 'line-honours' for the short event. See the post below for details of Sunday's event in Pukekura Park and don't forget to email Annie for pre-entries.
AND we'll see you all next week for the season closer, BBQ and spot prizes!!!

The most popular wrong answer was 1976 for the bridge at 32. The correct answer was 1979, being the sunset end of the city side (North West) .of the lower bridge. The upper bridge was dated 1976 at the sunrise end of the mountain side (South East)
The other bridge at 11 was wrong by two teams who both put 1932 as their answer. I have checked and there is no such date or number anywhere on the Devon street bridge over the Te Henui. There's a number of dates but 1904 is the correct one.
I apologise for the misplacement of number 90 in Girls High. Everyone who went there, & wrote something like no boulder got it.
I hope you had fun!

The easy way to tell who guessed Senegal correctly is if they have units in their score, due to the multiplication factor. Well done to all those teams!!!
We had a couple of little errors on the map and 1 or 2 ambiguous clues. Not to worry... There's no need to spend ages looking for something if you genuinely can't see it. Rogaine isn't a treasure hunt - it is a game of walking/running/cycling and navigation. But I think everyone enjoyed the bonus general knowledge test. See you next week at Fitzroy Surf Club.
