Oxford Odyssey

I was out of the loop when this happened, an annihilation of a couple of New Zealands best mountain runners by a couple of the orienteering boys.

The Oxford Odyssey is a new event on a great bit of terrain that was one of my favourite runs when I lived in Christchurch. One to put in your calenders for early February.

It is a good gauge of the fitness of the National Squad when you see names pop up all the time in the wider endurance sport world. With Godzone currently, Avalanche Peak and a couple of the older squad members getting around the Tararua Mountain race in good shape at the weekend things are shaping up for some swift competition at the races ahead.
