Great Lake Relay: Team Blog?

I've been thinking for awhile that we've built up a solid quorum of Kiwi running/triathlon bloggers, and it's about time we followed the example set by our North American brethren and had a big ol' meet up.

I dream of one day having a mega training camp, WIBA styles (and seriously, we have got to do something faboo to welcome Steve and Pharmie if they come), but in the meantime....

...is anyone keen to be part of Team Blog at the 2010 Great Lake Relay? Taupo's central enough that even the Wellingtonians can make it for the weekend, and it's a good fun event (I've done it twice). AND you can run extra and/or bring your bike if you're doing something silly like training for Ironman!

Just putting it out there.

Wish I was closer! Canada is a little far away!

Looks like it might be quite fun!

Definitely sounds interesting. I don't think anything clashes - marathon in March some time, cycle race on 17 April.

Which m-thon and cycle race?

Pip said...

The Mountain to Sea marathon in Taranaki on 6 March (the one you were concerned is too soon after Rotorua), and the Around Brunner cycle race, http://www.aroundbrunner.co.nz/
The cycle race is on my birthday and fits in with being in the South Island for the grape harvest. Perfect! But yes, I'd be keen to get involved in a blogger Taupo Relay.

Oooh.. Both sound great!

We'd probably be keen if free that weekend.

Andrew is getting fit said...

I'd be keen for sure! I don't have a bike yet, but I'd be hapoy to do a run leg...or if I get a bike in the meantime, i'd bike.

I'm in!

Kate said...

Lucinda- it's all running :)

Lucinda said...
