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.

Redwoods Relays 2014 Results

Hawks sent a total of seven teams over to a rather dreary and wet Long Mile Road in Rotorua for the 36th Redwood Relays. The top half of the course was in pretty good condition but the lower half through the parkland had people dodging and tip toeing around puddles.
