A modest but august group of Hawks ran the Sing Relay on Saturday under glorious blue winter skies. The format was the Helen Hall-King inspired method. The attendees were organised into ranking order. Teams of two were picked from the front and back of the line, meaning roughly even teams. All began together, the faster […]

“Where have all the runners gone” was a plea from Malcolm Taylor at last weekend’s Tauranga Cross Country. This club puts on a very well run event annually on an excellent running surface and as a cross country nut from way back I was saddened to see how few took part. Events like this will die […]
A cool foggy morning welcomed over 1950 participants to Huntly Domain for the 34th running of the Huntly Half, 10 and 5 km running event. It was fantastic to see a strong lineup of over 75 Hawks across all events with many great results. The fields were very strong for both the ½ and 10 […]
A beautiful Cambridge day at Cambridge Athletic and Harrier Club Grounds. 50 Hawks members turned out in force (13 teams plus several individuals under 11 years). Our U15 and U18 athletes dominated the younger grades thanks to members of Coach Vaughan Priddeys squad and also Hawks members from the St. Peters college athletics squad.Hawks Open Mens teams took 1st and […]
We hope you enjoy the collection of Rotorua Marathon thoughts from the day that have been contributed from some of our members completing the marathon. As spectators on the day we were proud to be part of the Hawks running club and watch many of our members tough it out on the course. See over […]
Hawks first night time race got off to a shaky start last Thursday night with heavy rain during the day having myself and Andrew considering postponing the event. At 5.15 we had doubts we would have the runners to make up a single 3 person team however by 5.30 we had 12 keen runners assembled […]
On Saturday the first harrier race of the season was held by Te Awamutu at the TA golf course. Over 80 runners and walkers took part. A little less than the organisers would have liked but still a solid turnout for so early in the season.Overnight rain left the course a bit softer than last […]
The first Club Race of the season saw a modest field of 27 compete over the traditional riverbank 5km course on Saturday. This was a self-handicapped event, with runners entering their own estimated times. The club clocks were all out on loan, but a bit of improvisation with a few iPhones managed to get everyone […]
There was a great turn out of both existing, returning and new members on the 2014 Open Day on what was a beautiful and hot autumn’s day. It was great to see so many people sign up for the new season and complete their membership forms. Glenn (Club President) shared some opening words and then […]
What a fantastic weekend for the Hamilton City Hawks at the 2014 Tarawera Ultra Marathon held in Rotorua on the 15th of March. The numbers speak volumes for our club’s participation level, with forty-two (minimum) club runners entered in the various events. This number equates to 5% of the total field and made up 18% […]
Last Saturday night the annual Hawks Prizegiving dinner was held at the club rooms. There was a great turnout with a good mix of juniors, oldies and everyone in between. Congratulations to all those members who took home trophies for their achievements this year. A special mention for Mike Harris who was awarded the Harrier […]
What a great weekend away – great racing, loads of laughs, and simply the highlight of the harrier season. This event keeps people like me in the sport! Of course many thanks to everyone for attending, the club committee for putting this together for us, and to John Crane for leading the organisation and taking […]
“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 […]
