The event -- a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and a 42km run -- is New Zealand's biggest annual international one-day sporting event. More than 1500 starters from 40 countries, including a record 680 from New Zealand, competed last year. Only 157 athletes started at the inaugural event in 1985, 68 from New Zealand. Counties Manukau's three eldest competitors are 65-year-old clerk Max Ihaka and 62-year-old security con- sultant Victor Timu, both from Manu- rewa, and 67-year-old Fred Burke from Eastern Beach. Each has done the event eight times. ND cricket title a first for Counties Manukau By ALAN APTED Counties Manukau cricketers have won the Brian Dunning Cup. They pulled off the historic win when they beat Waikato Valley by eight wickets at Weymouth Oval in Manurewa on Sunday. The Brian Dunning Cup goes to the provine that wins is the the Northern Districts Cricket Associ- ation one-day championship. It's the first time Counties Manukau have won the trophy outright. They had to share it with Hamilton in 2008/2009. Counties Manukau's win was emphatic -- they lifted the cup without losing a game. Their five-game unbeaten run started in November when a three-day Taupo stopover pro- duced wins over holders Bay of Plenty, Hamilton and Poverty Bay. They wrapped it up after Christmas with successes over Northland and then Waikato Val- ley. Waikato Valley won the toss and elected to bat. They were soon in trouble against the pace of Scott Guthrie of Waiuku, Jason Martin of Weymouth, Gian Botha of Papakura and Jonny Wilkinson of Pukekohe-Metro. Blanchard's three wickets made him the leading Counties Manu- kau wicket-taker this season. The asking rate of 2.75 an over was never going to be a problem for a strong Counties Manukau batting unit although Waikato Valley sprung a surprise when they used a spin bowler to open. The strategy worked as Kevin Farrell, the Pukekohe-Metro opener and the Counties Manu- kau all-time best one-day run scorer, was dismissed for one. But that was as good as it got. Manukau clubmates Ashwyn Herwels, 36, and Jono Hickey, not out 52, stopped the rot before Tamati Clarke of Weymouth scored 39 not out and brought home the game. Counties Manukau's next game is a two-day Fergus Hickey Rosebowl fixture against North- land on February 19 to 20 at the Weymouth Oval. Scoreboard Waikato-Valley 137 (Vaughan Blanchard 3-16, Jason Martin 2-18, Jonny Wilkinson 2-19) lost to Counties Manukau 138-2 (Jono Hickey 52 not out, Tamati Clarke 39 not out, Ashwyn Herwels 36) by eight wickets. TEAM Counties Manukau team is: Scott Guthrie (captain Waiuku), Stephen Horne, Shane Gadsdon, Gian Botha (Papakura), Ashwyn Herwels, Jono Hickey, Luke Glen (Manukau), Tamati Clarke, Jason Martin, Vaughan Blanchard (Weymouth), Kevin Farrell, Jonny Wilkinson (Pukekohe Metro), Grant Wilcock (coach) and Jimmy Ross (manager).
