A team of six runners ventured south in the weekend to compete in the inaugural Queenstown International Marathon. It was a spectacular course that started in Arrowtown (for the marathon runners), near the Shotover River (for the half-marathon runners) and Frankton for the 10km runners. Unfortunately the weather gods were not smiling down on Queenstown on Saturday, but this did not detract from the course, though it did mean a rather soggy finish for all. Ann-Marie Head completed her first marathon, Ruby Kim her first half marathon and Aimee Dunne her first 10km run. Other runners included Paul Durdin, Jared White and Nichola Blue who all completed the half marathon. It was a great effort by all and I’m sure one to be repeated next year!
