Napier Harrier Road Champs
Steve Charles brought the curtain down on the 2014 Harrier season with a dominant performance in the Napier Harriers Road Champs. The blustery Westshore course was no barrier to Charles as he put the hammer down from the gun to quickly stretch out the rubber band on the chasing pack.
Marton to Wanganui Relay
Sweeney Shield Road Relay
Annie's Angels. Annie & The Eternal Youth. Annie's Harem. Annie's Day Care Services. Whichever way you look at it, Annie Kane resembled the protective parent of her young charges on Saturday as she guided her youthful team to victory in the annual Sweeney Shield Road Relay.
HBG Road Champs
Phil McKay produced an admirable solo effort on Saturday at Westshore when taking out the annual Hawkes Bay Gisborne Road Champs. Apart from the first 2km when he had Napier's Robert Strong for company, McKay was left alone out front to effectively produce a time trial for the upcoming National Road Champs in Tauranga.
A bitter wind swept across the Ruataniwha Plains on Saturday and made life very uncomfortable for the brave souls battling the open spaces of the Laurence Cup course on the Marine Parade walkway. Holy hell...............was it cold!!! There were more than a few runners who ventured off from the start wearing more the usual attire.
