With Saturday morning looking very grim there was a good contingent of Hawks who made their way over to Whangamata for the annual Running Festival whether doing the Half , 10 km , 5 km or just been great supporters of the runners. The weather was not great at all with head winds for a lot of the courses not been fun to run into but you had to just plug away into it and hope you hadn’t done to much into it so you would get some benefit on the tail wind.
It was nice to see other Hawks crossing the line and sharing stories of how their day went in the half we had Lance Brew 4th in 1.18.14 Bridget Deverell 18th 1.30.25 Evan Primmer 53 1.57.31
10 kms Kent Hodgson 7th with Emerson Deverell 8th both with 38.20 Maureen Leonard 21st 47.01 I’m sorry if I missed anyone out here.
Many of the hawks manage to pick up podiums for different age groups.
