The 2019 event will be the second edition of the NZ Distance Carnival featuring some of NZ’s very best domestic middle-distance athletes. The NZ Distance Carnival is designed to provide an opportunity to facilitate fast racing within the New Zealand domestic season and for athletes to chase personal bests within a controlled racing environment. This seasons event will feature a number of paced 1500m and 800M heats with athletes having the opportunity to run under the lights at the Mt Smart facility. Last years event saw over 25 athletes achieve personal best times, including two World Junior Qualifiers and NZ leading times.
The brainchild of this event is Wellington Harrier’s Tim Cornish in collaboration with Athletics NZ. Cornish over the years has helped facilitate a number of fast racing opportunities for New Zealand’s best domestic athletes.
