Molesworth- How Long?

How long is the 84km Molesworth gonna take me??
Well your guess is as good as mine! To prove this I will give away a Dynafit Racing Cap to the person who guess's the closest to what my time ends up being. For what its worth my goal is 8hrs, so there is a start point for your guess.
One guess per person, so make it count. If you read this blog, then make a guess. I don't think there are a huge number of you out there, so you have a great chance of scoring a sweet hat!.
The Racing Cap is perfect for cruisy spring ski tour's (when you don't need a helmet), or trail running in the summer months. Good chance I will be wearing mine this Saturday.
I'll post this bad boy to you were ever your at.
Leave your guess here via a comment. 8:01.10 for example (8 hrs 1 min 10 sec, but I don;t think we need the sec's?). If you don't have a blogger account, leave a e-mail address , or a name at least.
Good luck


  1. 7:59 :-)
    Hi Grant, I'll be running Molesworth, too, so see you there. Perhaps you can wait at the finish for the rest of us ;-)

  2. Hi Grant,
    See you on the start line. You actually have the potential to run sub 7. So I'm going to guess 7:24 which is about 1 minutes quicker than what I'd like to do, although 7:59 is probably what I will do.

  3. I am going with 7:50. Good luck mate. Looking forward to hearing about it

  4. Hi First timer for a long run Grant. Good luck.I am going to go for 9hrs 49 min. Get the code? Plus 1.

  5. Cheers every one!
    Look forward to meeting you both Simon and Matt.

  6. 7hr44min- Tim is the winner of the racing cap, nice one Tim.
    Thanks to every one that played........

  7. What i want to know is where is your race report from the Sparks Turkey Trot 10k back in '05? Talk about spectacular race settings, i get misty eyed thinkin about it. Run into industrial part of town, around cone, leave industrial part of town into man made marina area next to busiest highway in America - pure genius. seasonal_utopia@yahoo

  8. Jamo, yeah mate, that would be a sweet race report. Reno always gets me misty eyed too.
    Best part is we "bandit" the race?? I can remember what it was you called it now, but I am thinking about introducing it here in NZ. I think the key to a successful bandit race is making sure you eat as much free food post race as possible!


"The skier who forsakes the lifts to climb under his own power to a mountain summit is a very different person from the downhill only piste basher and is often regarded by the latter as something of a curiosity.
But he was the creator of the sport; and possibly with him lies the future"
-Robin Fedden, The book of Europen Skiing, 1966
