National marathon champs, Blenheim – unofficial results

May 31, 2010

(The following rundown is from Marianne’s POV)

Cold, wet and MUD!!!  Marathon racing in Blenheim is always good fun.  The Wairau river had a bit of flow so made turns interesting.  However it was nice and flat and made for some great racing.  The best part for spectators was watching the racers contend with a very muddy and slippery portage area.  There was more than one graceful fall.  Look out for the results and links to u-tube – I think some were caught on camera!!



Marianne – 1st open women

Kayla – 1st U19 women

Dougie – 2nd U23 men

Glenn – 1st masters men

Brian – 2nd multisport

Hannah – 2nd U17 women


Good showing in the K2 races by Mana.  Kayla and Sophia won overall (mass start with a handicap for the junior womens crew).  Dougie and Glenn 3rd overall.  Matt and Marianne 5th overall and still married!!!

Good weekend.  Some rough ferry crossings and a great dinner on Saturday night.  We will be looking to send a big team from Mana next year.  It is great fun and very social.
