Race Committee - March 2013

Up to 50 people will be involved on race day making the event happen - thats in addition to the catering crew. The support team is recruited from SAR, the local mountain running community and friends and family. The event director is always keen to hear from volunteers wanting to lend a hand. The key people for the next race include:

  • Laurie Gallagher - Race Controller
  • Diane Imus - Registrations and Results
  • Lyndsay Fletcher - Web Master
  • Richard Hardie

The Tararua Mountain Race Trust

The Trust was set up in 2011 to take over the race. In one respect it is the core support team sitting behind the race director helping make key management decisions. In another sense it is the legal entity that manages and runs the event. Financially the Trust will be paying across any surplus funds to the beneficiaries of the trust - who are the local Search and Rescue Groups.

Copies of the trust deed and accounts are available on request.

The current list of trustees have all competed in the race:

  • Terry Patterson - Chairman
  • Paul Helm - Treasurer
  • Ben Clendon
  • Jo Holden
  • Mike Sheridan
  • Allan Stowell
