Remarkables Ski Field to Coronet Peak


What a view to the finish line and what a day for an adventure race!
Two JHC teams line up with a large number of other competitors for this epic race.


Sam Faherty and Ben Wylie make their way to the top of Shadow Basin. From there, they "run" to their skis and race down the mountain, over snow, grass and rock to the MTB transition. 
Ben Wylie finishes just ahead Sam Faherty to seed Daniel Strang rocketing down the mountain pursued closely by Liam Cruickshank. It’s a fast crazy decent with some very close calls of falling off the edge! 
At Frankton Beach Libby Flett and Halle Faherty await their arrival and Libby gets a narrow head start over Halle on what must be the toughest stage (7kms to Queenstown beach). Libby hands over to Nathan Scott for the 9km run and Halle hands over to Brendan Eyles just 70 secs behind. Brennan catches Nathan and powers on to give Ronan Shearing the lead into the final stage at the base of Coronet peak. Not far behind big brother Conor Shearing sets off at a sprint to catch Ronan and soon passes him to lead the Snr team to a win.

Overall results:

Team -  Ben Wylie, Daniel Strang. Libby Flett, Nathan Scott and Conor Shearing  3rd

Team-  Sam Faherty, Liam Cruickshank, Halle Faherty, Brendan Eyles and Ronan Shearing 5th
