Former World Courier Champ and local star Jenna Makgill took out first place today in 35 mins 26 seconds over the taxing 17km race around Auckland. Her partner Max came in 2nd place in 35mins 53 secs and Ken White came in 3rd in 36 min 30 sec. 24 racers battled to get through the 7 checkpoints.
Max Jenna and Ken podium champs.
Thanks to the first prize cheque from DVS and Cadence, combined with the entry fees, and the loot made form the generous bidders in the after race auction we managed to raise just over $1400 for Jenna to go towards the airfare to get her to Fast Friday in SF. Jenna’s a student so we are having an online auction of some stuff in the following weeks to raise some more money to make sure she get there.
Thanks to everyone who came out and raced and was part of it today – more photos soon – Mr Hagan Hill was out shooting SLR today and I know he would have got some doozies.
WELL DONE JENNA! We are so proud to be able to have you represent NZ for Fast Friday!
