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 km with the likes of Sam Wreford winning the 1/2 in a great time of 1.06 39, Samuel Murphy 2nd 1.11.25, Sasha Daniels 3rd in 1.14.50 and in 4th place overall and 2nd age group a rejuvenated Corey Hinde 1.16.54 and a solid run from Stephan Wagner placed 3rd in 40 to 49 age group.
Lydia O’Donnel was first woman over the line very close behind Corey with a time of 1.17.02 and following up from solid runs in the Rotorua marathon was Sue Crowley 2nd in 1.23.53 and Kovo Kowalewski 3rd in 1.25.22. Helen Hall-King placed 1st and Kay Stockman placed 3rd in the 50-59 age group.
In the 10km race Jonny McKee had a great run finishing 1st in 32.06 with Ryan McAlister 2nd in 32.38 and a very solid 3rd place for Steve Rees-Jones in 32.40. Jason Cameron had a great run with 35.27 to come 1st in 40-49 closely followed by our own President with a solid 35.35 to take 2nd (after spending a busy morning helping set up the course and pre-race nutrition of a large flat white and a custard slice).
Ross Butler took out the 5km event in 18.02 and Gordon Speirs placed 1st in 60-69 with a good time of 23.02.
There were many impressive individual efforts on the day, too many to put in this report however congratulations to all who competed and achieved on the day. I would also like to thank the many club members that volunteered their time to help make the day a success.
