McCarthy, McDonald win hill climb titles

The hill climb was an intense grunt up the trails of Signal Hill from Logan High School to the summit. Gavin McCarthy is considered something of a hill climb expert and took the men's title in style, covering the climb in 13 minutes and 32 seconds.

Anja McDonald used her local knowledge to claim the women's title after a 16-minute climb.

The junior men's race contained two Austalian juniors in their first race of the Championships, but neither could head off Auckland's Locky McArthur who won in 13 minutes and 38 seconds.
