Today (8 April 2017) the Hutt Valley Harriers hosted 30 under 10 year olds in a 1km run around the Petone Recreation Ground. This run was a rescheduled run of the annual kids 1km run that is usually run in conjunction with the Hutt News Fun Run and Walk. Due to the inclement weather on 12 March, the run was rescheduled to 8 April and we were blessed with a perfect fine day. All adult members of the club joined in with the parents of local children to support the youngster in their race.
First place went to Jonathan Green in a time of 3minutes 56 seconds. 2nd place went to Ashton Tietjens in 4 minutes and 3 seconds with Jessica McKenzie in 3rd place – and 1st girl – in a time of 4 minutes and 8 seconds. Second girl (and 4th overall) in 4 minutes 10 seconds.
