The Road Race has become a strong annual tradition over the years. The mid-winter event sees about half the students participate in a race which has a short flat section before climbing up Inland Road to Wishart and then back to College via Garfield and Rautawhiri Roads. The fields have got larger and the traffic heavier. For the first time the race was a City Council event with professional road traffic management involved.
It was keenly contested. The Inland Road hill is the place where the runners sort themselves out. Race winner Billy Bowman had a lead at the top which he extended coming down the hill. He won comfortably in a great time. The senior girls, were dominated by the trail runners Ellice Protheroe and Rachel Meadows. The top three junior girls ran excellent times and Year 9 student, Chicayne Prior won the Junior Boys but was also 4th overall; an outstanding performance.
