The Kauri run unification title fight/race

Sjors, 2009 Kauri Run.

Sjors, 2009 Kauri Run.

On the eve on The Kauri Run Chris Morrissey drop the below in my inbox late last night. In Chris words “just a quick scene setter for you”- I am guessing Chris is a tad excited about today’s race!

On the start line … Sjors Corparal. Record holder, 2:26 ish, raced twice, won twice. Vajin Armstrong. Raced twice. 2nd to Sjors the first times and won on his second attempt last year. He is current defending champ. PB 2:34 something Then there’s me. Raced 3 times since 2005. I’ve recorded 2:37 each times. Must be stuck in a rut. Placed 2nd, 3rd and then 1st in 2011. So that makes three guys who won the race on their last attempt. Should be fun. Add to the mix past champion Colin Earwacker who runs in denile of his age. Then there’s fast starter short course glory boy king of the mountain hopeful duathlon legend evergreen Graeme Pearson. Add anyone else that wants to put their hand up tomorrow. Who knows what could happen. That’s why we race.
