Cougar Trail 2021

Cougar Trail Run 2021 Results

A large group of Hawks who traveled down to Tokoroa to take part in the Total Sport Cougar Trail Run – a really cool (literally!) run around the Cougar Mountain bike park…Unusual in that it is not often you get to run dedicated mountain bike trails!

While it was a very cool start (~2 degs) once the sun came up it was really nice running conditions. Outstanding run of the day (from Hawks perspective) was Andrew Beggs winning the Mid Course 14km event in 1:03:41 – over 3 minutes ahead of second-place….Well done Andrew! And once again Boh Ritchie extending her impressive run of results with an overall win in the Short Course Run.

The winner of the 21km event was Casey Thorby in an almost unbelievable 1:26:13 for the men, and the always impressive Sue Crowley from Rotorua taking the women’s race in 1:40:56 (also 9th overall). 

Other commendable results were:

Dave Gunn  21k  1:47:40  1st MM50-59 (11th overall)
Garry Wilson  21k  1:52:45  3rd MM50-59 (22nd overall)
Kevin Knowles  21k  1:54:24  1st MM60-69 (29th overall)
Wendy Fox  21k  2:26:35  2nd MW60-69
Dot Larsen  21k  2:26:38  3rd MW60-69
Helen Hall-King 14k  1:27:24  1st MW50-59
Mike Riley  14k walk  1:55:21  1st MM60 (2nd overall)
