Double Rainbow Race 2017 Report

I don’t like hills, they are my kryptonite. I lose all hope, momentum and generally the will to live when attempting to scale them.

Kauri Run and The Nugget Events 2017 Results

The large high over the stunning Coromandel Peninsula meant those entered in these trail runs had sunshine as they ran the scenic courses.

Tarawera Race 2017 Report - Cecilia's Run

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.

Arc Kauri Run 2016 Race Report

Decided to do kauri run. Decided to do the 13km cos I'm on a tight budget and fitness isn’t that great. Well, I think I did ok.

"how hard could 33k be?"

I entered due to a severe case of FOMO and thought "how hard could 33k be?" I bought new shoes (thanks to Colin at Trek n Travel) and toe socks. Four little training runs later and I was happy that they would keep me on the trail.

The Tussock Traverse

We were greeted at the Chateau with 2 friendly faces, Steph and Hadley, both helping and welcoming all. The usual buzz of pre-race day was felt with our race bag & clean shoe checks done, race numbers handed out.

Double Rainbow Trail - Mark 2

Last year I did the 17km (1 lap up) and so this year, after gaining a free entry ( thanks guys), I decided why not try the 25km ( 2 laps up). 4 laps is just mental. Who would do that?

T42 Marathon 2015 Results

I had no idea, really. No idea of the terrain, no idea of the route, no idea how to adjust my borrowed race pack and no idea whether my obligatory pre-race injury would actually allow me to start, let alone finish.
