Hill City University Update 15/6/17

Hi everyone,

We had some cracking results at the Barnes Cross Country last weekend, from all age groups. Of note, Stafford Thompson ran super fast to take out the fastest time in the mens race, closely followed by Kirk Madgewick, well done guys!! The kids were amazing as usual also, in the U13 girls race Lila and Anya Rhodes placed first and second, while in the U13 boys race Archie Rhodes, Ollie Oberlin Brown and Fergus Oberlin Brown placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. Wow!

In the U18 races, Ella Hou came first in the womens race, while Josh Hou, Drew Cairney and William Scharpf placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. Senior women also dominated in their event too with Shauna Pali 1st, Bella Bloomfield 2nd and Bridget Thompson 4th. Fantastic work everyone!!

This weekend we have a club run or walk from the clubrooms, meeting at 1.30pm to leave in our groups at 2pm. Sarah will be taking the kids out this weekend:)

All the very best of luck to Romain Mirosa who is competing in the New Zealand Marathon Champs in Wellington this weekend, go well Romain!

Coming up on the 24th June, we are meeting up with the Ariki club to have our annual cross country with them at Rotary Park. This is handicap style, and good fun, approx 5km, with a kids event also. We will need an idea of your 5km time please so Mike can do the maths to get your start times worked out, so start thinking about this.

Thanks everyone
