Well hope you all enjoyed the Apley Road Cross Country. A nice course if you enjoy a couple of hills, and thankfully we have had a bit of rain lately that added that fun layer of mud to the course! Hope you all rocked your socks off, and managed to pass one or two people on the way up . . . or down!!!
Thank you to our amazing helpers on the day. Totally appreciated as always!
This Saturday - 1st July – North Island Cross Country Champs in Taupo. You must have pre-entered to compete in this event. So a huge big GOOD LUCK to those that have entered. Fly the Napier Harrier gold and black with pride! Run hard, do your best and of course have fun!
For those that are not going to Taupo there will be group runs at the Clubrooms. Meet at 2pm. Kids and adults will be catered for, with distances depending on who turns up. Afterwards you are welcome to help yourself to a cuppa and open up some biccies!
8th July – Springfield Scramble – We have already had a bit of a run a few weeks ago on this track, so we should all be raring to go. Event Plan U12’s 1 Lap
Everyone else can choose 1-2-3 laps.
15th July – NHC and HBG Cross Country Champs – This is a biggie for all our Club members. If you are available make sure that you get to this race, singlet on, laces double knotted!

2017 Queens Birthday Race
Queens Birthday Road Races
5 June 2017
Well wasn’t that fun?? It was a beautiful morning for running with a good turnout. Numbers were healthy, even allowing for the absence of the Secondary School runners saving themselves for the East Coast Champs. Before commenting on the races, a big thank you goes out to Wayne Smith and the large team of officials, marshals and results crew that made the event possible. Without those helpers, the event would not happen.
2017 Mission XC
Mission Cross Country
Well by my bad maths, there were 134 finishers at Saturday’s Mission XC – that’s a promising start to the season given that I reckon that close to 100 of those runners were from Napier HC….WHOOP WHOOP!!!!
Great weather. Great course. Great atmosphere. Great fields (35 in the U12 field alone). That all equals a great day. Thanks heaps to Reading Cinemas & Noel Leemings for the brilliant prizes. And an even bigger thank you to all the helpers from the day – it is very much appreciated.
2017 Marrett Madness
