Jacks Point Trail Run

The inaugural Jacks Point Trail Run was held in mix conditions at Jacks Point, just outside of Queenstown today. The event is the brain child of former Luxmore Grunt record holder Andrew Town and the tough little course reflects Andrews long association with hard mountain running events.

In the Outside Sports 21k, Queenstowns Simon Green dominated the mens field taking the lead in the early stages of the 3 lap course and setting a blistering pace on a very technical hilly course with over 700 m of elevation. He was followed home by Veteran runner and legend of the Kepler Challenge fame Russell Hurring who was 2nd across the line and 1st Veteran in a time of 1:48:09.
In 2nd place in the Open Men was Chris Fraser 1:58:08 and 3rd Martin Krumns of Wanaka 2:02:50.
In the Womens race Karen Kirkham was placed 1st in a time of 2:13:07, 2nd was Tamsin Browne 2:19:12 and 3rd Naomi Shaw 2:20:20. Polly Buchanan was 1ist Veteran Women in a time of 2:28:11 for 13th place overall.
