Hawks had a great day at Tarawera, representing in style all through the events – well done all.
This year’s relay in Rotorua didn’t disappoint. It was all of these things … and to cap it off the Hawks finished with a 3 way share of top overall club.
It was pleasing to see the Hawks singlet prominent in many of the events. Here is a selection and brief comment on some club members who caught the eye.
I was blown away by the course setting, the park like appearance the lack of traffic and the supportive land owner so congrats Glenn you did a stupendous job. The future potential for the Hawks club to hold events here is great news.
The Sweeney Cup road races on Saturday attracted an excellent field of 53 in the open 8kms.
It was clear and cold with a SW wind keeping the temps down but it was a day of good racing for a few from the club with fields small and racing keen.
It was really awesome to see such a strong turn-out from both the Hawks and Cambridge Harriers. Huge thanks also to the Cambridge Harriers for hosting such a well-run event.
The best weather ever. Running with the frost still on the ground on the shaded areas of the Spa Park course. A great number of entries, as usual, meant very competitive racing.
Despite a solid amount of rain at the outset, a good turnout of runners and supporters made it to our club champs at the Minogue Park course on Saturday…
This is how it worked. Each runner was put in a team according to which high school they went to and their age. To make a team, had to be at least 3 from the same school.
The annual Airport Christchurch marathon and associated events attracted 4500 entrants and Hawks athletes figured prominently in the National half Marathon section
There was a small but enthusiastic turnout for the Bannister Plaque on Saturday, an event that was a late addition to the calendar for anyone who was around over the long weekend … and it turned out to be an enjoyable and sunny Hamilton afternoon for the 22 runners who came along.
The annual Tauranga Open Cross Country was held on a remarkably dry Waipuna Park course with no surface water or mud despite the heavy overnight rain.
What a magic day of old style cross country racing took place at the Narrows Christian Camp on Saturday.
