Rotorua finally put on a sunny day for this year’s edition of their Red Stag relays held in the Redwood forest.
Hawks sent their biggest team for a while. We had 9 teams attend. This was particularly pleasing with Whangamata Half and Hamilton Parkrun’s 100th event also on, making for a very busy weekend.
For the first time one of our teams was a combined OM team with Te Awamutu, and it was good to see the smaller clubs getting a chance to compete at relay events.
Hawks OW picked up a 1st, MM 1st, 3rd and 5th, MW a 2nd, OM 2nd and 5th. MY had a good win and the composite team had a 5th.
Fastest woman went to Emerson Deverell and fastest youth went to Callum McDonald. It was also great to see Sam and Katie Corbett running very strongly – in the MY grade. Well done girls.
Once again a huge thanks to Kevin Knowles for picking and repicking the teams several times.
