Podium finish: Naomi Whitehead was third, and first Nelson woman to finish the Haven Realty Sanctuary Run Long course on Saturday. Photos: MARION VAN DIJK Nelson Events is playing its part in bringing back the birdlife'' to the Brook Wai- marama Sanctuary. In Saturday's Haven Realty Sanctuary Run women trailrun- ners and walkers outnumbered men finishers 112 to 98 and if the trend continues blokes may become the endangered species. Conditions were perfect for the record field willing to escape into the backwoods of Nelson and beyond for the third edition in what is becoming an iconic race on the national off-road scene. A total of 90 competitors trav- elled from outside the region to experience the variation in ter- rain, the intensity of the climb to Fringed Hill and then the speed of the downhill stretch from Third House before Nel- son's piece of paradise'' that lies in the old Waterworks Reserve. Kim Hogarth beat all home over the long course but he could not relax -- Benjamin McDowall and last year's winner Kelvin Meade ( Auckland ) were all within a minute at the end. Christchurch's Karen Muller had a clearer margin to win the women's title, chased home by Nicky Waters (Christchurch) and Naomi Whitehead (Nelson). Muller also set a 40-49 age group record. Biggest Improver over the 25km course was Grant Weston ( Westport) who shaved 17min 38 sec off his last year's time. Grant Standing, the 14km race winner, commented at the prizegiving that he had never won an event in his running career but that all changed after his effort over the short course. He was a man on a mission'' once he got his head in front and no one was going to stand in his way as he blitzed around the Brook circuit and a six-minute victory. Juliet Ayre was as efficient in the women's race, joining five others including Standing in setting age group records. Results 25km Overall.
