Really nice course through the woods at Shotover. Not much mud and only a small part of the big hill. The men all did 10k and the ladies 6k. The early races missed the rain but I think the M40s got a bit wet.
Note from Fergus - The M40s, who ran 3 hours and about 9 races later, did get wet and VERY muddy. The "nice" new course Laurie enjoyed in the morning was very treacherous in places by 2pm after the heavy rain. No big hills, but lots of little ups and downs all with a sharp turn at the bottom. In the mud. But that's why we love cross country running.
