Start of 2020 winter season

Hi everyone

Well! Do I have great news for you!! NZ has absolutely aced this COVID-19 thing, so we are allowed to get together for the opening of our 2020 Winter harrier season! Yeeehaaa!!!

So its official, we will open our clubrooms on Saturday 6th June at 1.30pm for a club run. Bring yourselves, your families, your new running buddies, and lets enjoy a run together.

We will have a sign in process, as you will be likely well used to by now, ask that you use sanitiser on arrival, and we will have some measures in place so we can have a cuppa together, but likely no shared food (I will look into how we can manage this). Social distancing will be a long term measure wherever we go so please continue with this also.

Subs: We are working this just now with Athletics NZ so hold tight with your online registrations til I say GO!

So excited! Looking forward to seeing you all:)

HCU take the double

It wasn’t mud, sweat and tears but hail, determination & smiles all round when HCU contested the Ponydale Relays on Saturday.

The Club took out the double winning both the Senior Men’s and Women’s titles.

Joe Beamish, Kieran Cody, Josh Campbell & Andy Pohl made up the winning team with
Joe recording the second fastest time of day on the 2730m course. Not even a very cold polar blast could stop this race and the boys battled through the elements and all ran extremely well.

In the women’s race Hannah Adamson, Katrina Andrew, Mary Gray & Deb Lynch
held off Christina Taylor, Kirsty O’Sullivan, Bella Bloomfield & Susannah Lynch to give the club the quinella.

The Mens 18 team of Ben Wardhaugh, Lochie Chittock, Matt Ogle & Oli Chignell
won their grade with Oli recording the fastest time of the day over the 2000m course.

The Masters Men team of Kerrin Williams, Ian Graham, Steve Bloomfield & Mike Wakelin
finished second in their race with Mike the fastest Master of the day.

William Scharpf was the fastest U13 boy recording a 2.37 for the 730m course which according to the record books is a new best time.

Full Ponydale results can now be viewed on the Athletics Otago website.

Well done everyone.

Lovelock relays 2014

May 3: The club will host the 77th annual Lovelock Relays at the University Oval this Saturday afternoon. Following completion of the relays there will be a mass pack run at 3.45pm with prize giving at the Hill City-University clubrooms 4.30pm.

Please refer to club website for start times; club teams will be posted on the HCU website and emailed through the mailing lists Wednesday.

Club uniform to be worn if you do not have the club singlet please email size required, price to be advised we will ensure we have some club singlets there on Saturday. Shorts are black.

For HCU club members competing the cost is $5 (as opposed for $10 for other competitors), please bring your $5 and give to your team captain who will hand back when the race numbers are returned. I think Ivan will have the mobile eftpos machine too if any one requires this.

Please note there is no club run/walk from the clubrooms.

Thanks if you have offered to help on the day Tom Heller will be in contact, and if you are available to help but have not indicated please let me know.
