A new event will provide an added challenge for competitors in this year’s Salmon Run multisport event at Rakaia.
Organisers have added a 22km mountain bike course to the schedule, taking the total number of races to be contested in the October 13 event to seven.
The 2018 instalment of the Salmon Run will be its fourth and the seven events cater to all fitness levels, spokesperson Jo Burrows said.
Raced around the iconic Rakaia River, the riverbed and its surrounding countryside, the Rakaia Lions Jackson Holmes Salmon Run is a non-profit event with all money raised going . . .
