“Twas a BLUSTERY DAY in the woods” of the beautiful Taitua Arboretum. 12 people turned up and 8 ran in 3 teams. Still enjoyed a great little race, although I would love to see a bigger field next year. The wind blew hard as we picked the 3 evenly matched teams, with one strong gust […]
Road Champs at Ruakura 2km loop course and what a day of racing! In the 5km masters women race a tight group had a good battle, with Vicki Rees-Jones putting on a strong last lap surge for a good win. A welcome return to form for Vicki. The 10k race saw a very tight pack stick […]

Red Stag relays is an event that is looked forward to by all and well represented by running clubs coming from as far as Hawera and Auckland. Once again Hawks had a strong representation with 8 teams and the weather held off for the race however heavy rain over night made the course a little […]
Sweeney Cup was held at Horsham Downs on Saturday and a huge thank you to Graham Dudfield who was day organizer. As the club has no handicapper I like his idea of self handicapping which seemed to work well. A strong walking group turned up including three octogenarians. There was an impressive walk from Barb […]
There were challenging weather conditions for this 2nd event which attracted 496 finishers. The heavy clouds and cold showers kept post entries down to 86. It was not a fast course on Sunday due to the surface water, muddy grass finish and the first 9kms into an easterly wind however there were a remarkable number […]
There were some excellent Hawks performances in many races so well done to those who traveled to the Waikato Road Champs in Whakatane. Some comment on the results. Camille’s 34 minutes for her 10km does seem to be by far the fastest win in a provincial champs eg in Auckland Georgie Grgic did 36.47. Kyle […]
Popular long standing event. Attracted around 30 teams from around the Waikato Bay of Plenty. There was strong support from walkers. It is a great little event run well by a small club. Despite forecast for rain it remained fine and was cloudy. Course was on footpaths and was a fast flat 3.3 km circuit. […]

What an outstanding national cross country for the club. Four golds, two silvers and three bronzes. The Hawks trifecta in the B14 grade was a brilliant effort and gave me great pleasure with Isaiah Priddey leading all the way but having to race hard to hold off Hamilton Boys High clubmates Sam Montgomery and Connor […]
The Waipuna course was firm and dry on Saturday for the champs and 33 Hawks travelled over the hill to take part. In light fields club athletes won 12 golds, 6 silvers and 7 bronzes so a fair bit of metal returned to Hamilton. Thanks to Kent for tent duty and for those supporters who […]
Try a session of rep steps at Lake te ko Utu. The 110 steps beside the flow form is a popular staircase for the local fire brigade at they train for their Sky Tower challenge.
KING and QUEEN of MANGAKAWA On the mountain on Saturday it was cold but fine and many club members joined host club Cambridge with Matamata, Hamilton Road Runners and Frankton for the annual blast up Sanitorium Hill. Past best times were not threatened and the 2011 Steve Rees-Jones 18.00 and Sarah Biss ‘s 21.07 remain. […]
The 26th North Island Cross Country Champs was held on Saturday in mild dry weather on the challenging but fast Spa Park course. One had to search for any sign of mud and there was a strong Hawks presence in numerous events with many successes. John T and I were proud to be Hawks and […]
