RE: ARTHUR LYDIARD OR JACK DANIELS?
Should be a good day,and a good rememberance of Arthur. However, I wonder what he would think, not so much about the idea but the course.
What is disappointing about that Course is not anything to do with the people organising it but Government "compliance" issues and "Risk Management".
The course in that run is only parts of the original Waiatarua (admittedly the really good parts are still there).
The organisers have obviously been told they cannot run on certain roads (High Risk !!!) and have had to make alternative routes.
Our current "Politically correct" Govenment has made life really tough for Endurance Event organisers in terms of compliance and now a simple Road race is a major issue to organise.
Even "organised Training" runs from clubs cannot be done without careful consideration of the "Risks".

Even with my own Coaching at High School level I have to make sure that if I am not training on the School Grounds that I tell the athletes that I am going for a run at a certain time and if they care to join me they are welcome. If not it is no problem.
It is not "official" school Training.
The whole system has gone crazy.
The beauty of this area is there are lots of places to run and there are always small groups out running but have no "affiliation" to an organised group.

So in short, I am not sure I will be there. If I am I will not be running (Knee surgery !!!)
