On 2 November our School Taranaki ‘Soul Mates’ team were at the start line at 2.30am at the TSB Stadium in New Plymouth to compete in the 150km  ‘Steelformers round the Mountain Relay’ alongside other school teams and individual and corporate runners.

The team consisted of the following students:

Isacc Smith, Marcus Stratford, Zac Dawson, Ty Newell, Luke Newson, Kahlen Flexman, Jack Taylor, Sain Jaafar, Judd Brown, Daniel Glenie, Emma Swan, Ashley Fillet, Rochelle Christie, Aiden Bray, Jaimee Scott and Ryan Johnson.

 

Sunny conditions enabled our runners to run to their best performances to allow them to cross the finish line in second place, beating other high school and intermediate teams. We are proud of all of these runners efforts in training during the school year as well as running in this tough endurance event. Thank you to all of the parents who supported in the success of this event once again.
