Top results at champs
Cross-country winner Nikolai Allen and second-placed Mathew Bealing helped Wellington take the Primary and Intermediate Schools Inter-Regional Champs for the first time in six years.
The pair were part of a 16-strong local contingent taking part in Wellington’s win.
Nikolai’s win in the year 8 boys’ three kilometre race was a stand-out.
He took out a second age-grade title to become the only Upper Hutt runner to have won two events after winning three years ago.
The Maidstone Intermediate runner was at his tactical best on Thursday after being blocked at the beginning and slowly working forward to sit second before a surge in the third and final lap to take the lead and go on to win comfortably in 10m 21s.
His success was part of a strong year 8 effort which collected valuable points to see the Phil Costley Shield awarded to the Wellington region after the day’s eight races.
Earlier, Pinehaven School’s Mathew Bealing was strong in claiming silver in the year 5 boys’ two kilometre race in 7m 56s.
The cross-country running was on grass on a undulating circuit at Nelson’s Teapot Valley Camp in top conditions.
Eight locals finished in the top 12 including a fifth (10:37) from Logan Slee (HIBS) in the year 8 boys.

Wellington took 82 of its finest runners who were selected from the regional competition in July.
Alison Lavin, the Wellington team organiser from Primary Sport Wellington, said in her team email the day after the event.
"I would like to congratulate all runners for their efforts on Thursday at the Inter-Regionals. It was the result we wanted after all that hard work and it was pleasing to see all runners arrive at the finish line having given it their all. Well done to each and every one of you. Your efforts and behaviour made all of us very proud . The leadership by the year 8's was fantastic, probably the best we have had in all the 8 years that we have been attending and the team spirit that was generated was noticed by all. I feel we lead the opposition in both the running and the chants."
Trentham United Harriers has had other wins at this Inter Regional event over the last 5 years, as well as many top 10 placings.

Well done to all the 35 runners from our club who represented their schools and region at this event. For some it was their first Regional experience with pleasing results. There were some outstanding results and then there were some that didnt have the result they were hoping for, But everyone did well and congratulations to you all for having been selected to run at regional level, you should all be proud of your efforts.(for results check out results 2 page)
The top 10 runners from each age and gender now go on to compete at the inter-provincial primary/intermediate cross country champs held this year in Nelson on Thursday 26th September. Congratulations to these runners who make up part of the 80 strong Wellington Representative team. They are, Sam Mackinder, Charlotte Floodsmith-Ryan, Thomas Strawbridge, Luke Elliott, Sophie Dawson, McKenzie Jacques, Logan Slee, Nikolai Allen & Michael Poa.
There were some year 4 runners who were also in the top 10, but as year 4 do not run at interprovincial level they will have to wait another year! They are Katelyn Sceats, Max Young, Findlay Benge & Will Young. Watch this space!
