The Sasquatch Roaming The Forests During the 2008 Round Taupo Relay

Originally uploaded by m0rehu.
The Cellar Rats returned to the Round Taupo Relay with a few new comers to defend their proud record. After 14 hours and 32 minutes we crossed the line to be 4th in our division of about 200 teams. We were only 6 mins slower than last year when we finished 3rd.

New records were set by Aaron, Barry, James (though we are requesting a recount as James beat Maurie's record by 4 seconds and it just doesn't seem right) and Racheal. Maurie set an awesome record over 10.1 k, blitzing the previous record for when the leg was 2k shorter!

Everybody gave their all with the new comers seeing what 100% effort 100% of the time really means.

Once again the support from team mates was awesome. Our own prizegiving in the presence of Koro James was an impressive event, but signs that Shane might not see the full evening out were beginning to emerge.

We all danced the night away and made it back to our digs safely with Lea being like a DP and getting everyone on the taxi to get home.

What an event! Check the photos.

Many laps were changed so new records were set over many laps.
