Oldest Competitor Award

MAX MCDERMID MEMORIAL TROPHY DONATED BY ARROWTOWN.COM

To recognise the legends of the Motatapu event, each year the oldest competitor in each event is recognised with a Legend Trophy, awarded to them at prize giving. This award celebrates the legendary achievement these competitors have made.

In addition to the legend trophies, the Motatapu event also recognises the oldest overall competitor in the Miners Trail with the Max McDermid Memorial Trophy donated by Arrowtown.com. Max McDermid was a regular face participating in the 15km Miners Trail at the Motatapu event, and received this award each year for five years after it was donated by Arrowtown in 2010. Sadly Max passed away in 2014 but his passion for walking in the hills around Arrowtown will continue to inspire.

The Max McDermid Memorial Trophy represents the wide range of ages that compete in the Motatapu with the Pounamu signifying the history of the land traversed by the event. The base of the trophy is made from native New Zealand Rimu and Pounamu was sourced from Olderog Creek near the Arahura River on the West Coast of the South Island. The trophy was proudly donated by Arrowtown.com
