Congratulations Ron Stevens

Training 50km a week with plenty of speed work and the odd cha cha or samba in the mix, Ron always has a goal in his sites. This summer's track season is no exception.

Ron's 55years of running has not dampened his enthusiasm for the sport. Over the last couple of months Ron's distinctive upright striding form (the envy of many runners half his age), has been quick stepping around the athletic track breaking records from 800m to 10,000m.

Ron's latest record, the M75 10000m was run at the Canterbury 10000m Championships at QE2 stadium on Saturday 20th December. The conditions were unseasonably cool and damp, some would say ideal. Ron consumed the 25.5 laps in 43:51.73, clipping a good 16 seconds off the previous record he himself set in 2007.

In the month previous Ron has made his mark at the South Island Masters Championships held at Memorial Park, Mosgiel. Running his first 800m championship race in 40 years, Ron stopped the clock at 3min 1.7sec lowering the record by 11.2 seconds. Ron also broke the 1500m and 3000m age group records(M75-79) at this same meeting.

Ron's 2008/09 Track Season Records
800m - 3min 1.7sec
1500m - 6min 00.7sec
3000m - 13min 00.50sec
10000m - 43min 51.73sec

Results from the Canterbury 10000m
Results from the South Island Masters Championships

Yvonne
Dear Members,

It is with great sadness that I write this message to let you know that Yvonne died this afternoon. She leaves a huge gap. She put her heart and soul into being a wife and mother. She put energy and determination into being a top class runner. We will miss her warmth, her camaraderie and her friendship.

69th Takahe to Akaroa Road Relay

club members racing
Yet another year and another relay. The weather co-operated and the breeze meant the midges were merely an occasional pest. The highlight of the day for our Club was Ron Stevens leading his O50 Team to victory on his 50th running of this historic event. Our Masters Women and Mens Teams were second in their grades and our composite Team was 4th in the Mens C grade. The big surprise of the day was the Hilltop Tavern being closed when we all pulled up for the traditional after match debrief.
