Report by Dave Southwick An august bunch of Hawks fanatics found themselves at Lake Waiwhakarehe, Rotokauri on Saturday to run the Kevin Knowles inspired course. Arriving in heavy rain and a cold southerly, they were not wimps, sitting by the warm fire, complaining about the weather. Those were with an eye on history would have […]
Six teams of three competed in this event, and everyone turned up ready to go.
The large high over the stunning Coromandel Peninsula meant those entered in these trail runs had sunshine as they ran the scenic courses.
On Saturday morning 10ish of the Hawks lined up at the start of the Rotorua Marathon on a chilly morning.
Trophy day is a handicap start, and is our traditional season opener.
Tuesday nights – Speed work with coach Graham Dudfield. There is always a great turn out each week for Graham’s speed work sessions – come along and join in.
Report By Lance Brew Sunday morning and the radio clicks on to wake me up but it’s 4.00am. I leap outta bed as fast as I could so not to wake anyone else up in the house. Yep it’s race day – time to have a feed and start switching my mind on to what I’m about to […]
Report by Glenn A modest but keen bunch of 18 turned up to the Sing Relay on Saturday.

Cecilia Flori surprised some (but not most Hawks) by having an absolute blinder and coming a narrow third in a top field, just behind a world champion and an Olympian – congratulations! Here’s how her race unfolded in this report.
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.
