Confirmed National Champs
I notice the Athletics NZ website has been given a facelift. Looks quite good from my initial exploration, although some of the text content doesn’t wrap properly around the new containers.
What really caught my eye, after we had a complain about lack of advance notice around knowing nationals in relation to the marathon, was this page:
I think youll find that its not simply a facelift. Lots of new features and functionality.
There are a number of major changes coming with this website being the first..
Looking at what IMG STG (http://www.imgstg.com/) has done with others sports there is no doubt we are yet to see all of the good stuff behind the new site. I would expect that we’ll see the event and merchandising arms put in place which would be good.
There are still some obvious teething issues while things migrate from the old platform, but this is finally a move to something that is a great ‘face’ of the sport.
The best thing I like about the new site is that there is lots of new content that hasn’t been around before, and also the realisation of lots of stuff that Athletics NZ has been talking about for years.
Great job ANZ – looking forward to visiting the site more regularly now!
yeh looking good. Speaking of marathon, when will we see final/confirmed results from the marathon champs back in June?
What mountain in Chch is hosting the mountain champs? I assume that must mean somewhere in the Southern Alps rather than the actual Chch? I was looking forward to a trip back to friendly ol’ Mt Campbell, but somewhere new is also exciting.
Bam! Just like that, another couple of hundred broken results links on our club’s website.
At least ANZ didn’t lose the old results like the last update (are they back yet?) but it makes me a bit reluctant to link to ANZ’s results any more.
I see ChCh is no longer listed for Mountain Champs, Auckland is no longer listed as Roads or Relays and Wellington no longer listed as XC for 2014 like they were a month ago.
More updates in the last week or so:
2014 XC: Christchurch
2014 & 2015 Roads: Auckland
2014 Half: Wellington (June Harbour Capital event)
2015 Half: Christchurch
2015 Marathon: Auckland (of course, 2014 has been previously set as Rotorua)
2015 Mountain: Wellington
There’s a statement that the 2014 Mountain Champs will be confirmed 12 Nov (today!). Depending on how you read it, that could mean Road Relays will also be confirmed today.
Wonder what this is all about: “Managers for clubs contact [email protected] for an update on 2014 & 2015 Road Relays”
I took that to mean ANZ know where the 2014 & 2015 Relays will be, but it’s not official enough to be public yet and they are allowing club managers to get unofficial notice in case they want to block book accommodation in advance. I couldn’t think of any other reason.
