New Zealand Track & Field Meetings
Auckland Grand Prix Cross Country, race two, Lloyd Elsmore Park Pakuranga – 25 May 2019
Tayler Reid on the eve of leaving for the European triathlon season, rounded out his preparations with a win in the annual Pakuranga 10km event. Jono Jackson, Peter Wheeler and Reid led for four of the 2km circuits before Reid put the hammer down of the last lap to break clear of Jackson and carry on to a 32:33 victory, five seconds ahead of Jackson. Wheeler dropped back to third in 33:06.

Reid, last year’s world under 23 champion, heads to Europe in a week’s time with his first race in Leeds and later a world cup race in Antwerp Belgium where he finished second last year and is hoping to go one better. “It was great to get a win today, I was really stoked that Jono and Peter made it a good race. “I drove up from my base in Cambridge this morning to compete, after swimming for just over an hour. It was definitely worth coming up here as it’s great to have the competition to get the best out of yourself. “This the last key session before I go away and it shows that I’m in good form,” said Reid.

Katrina Andrew, back in action following a stress fracture, won the women’s 10km in 38:17. The former Otago cross country champion and silver medallist in the national 10,000m championship in Inglewood in 2017 was pleased to be in action again. “I’ve been based in Auckland from Dunedin for the past two years, but I’ve had a run of injuries,” said Andrew. Alana Lythe was second in 40:48 and Amanda Holyer third in 44:10.

Nick Moore was a clear winner of the masters 8km in 27:45 from Ben Winder and Chris Robb.
