Gilchrist Rose Bowl – School of Origin 2017 Results

Report by Andrew Wark

The School of Origin was well attended by 26 Hawks on a windy day which was chilly pre-race with the winds coming across the lake and everyone trying to keep warm. The race was based on an age adjusted format where the age of the runner is used to calculated times trying to even out and handicap runners on an age calculation.

Teams were selected on the school that each runner attended. The age adjustment calculates a % result based from the, then an average of all the team’s times is calculated, the highest average won the Gilchrist Rose Bowl. The course is a 2km quite challenging hilly cross-country loop which was a bit wet and soft in some areas, with 2 km race for the kids and a 4km and 6 km option.

The cold temperatures of the pre-race were soon forgotten once the race began with Cameron and Ryan having a great battle at the front of the race with Cameron winning a close finish. Kent, Emerson, Marc Scott, Mike Harris and Andrew all competed strongly over the 3 laps of course with Kent leading them home. Grace Ritchie had a good strong finish to the 4 km race to win with Malesa 2nd  and Trish Stockman in 3rd .

Back at the club while we all enjoyed some beverages (hot & cold) plus afternoon tea. A team of experts (which included at least 1 accountant) and their super computer calculated the results which were as followed, in order:

Fairfield Diocesan
Hillcrest/Huntly
MacLeans/Feilding/Kamo/Aust
BOP/Te Awamutu
