Hi Everyone

This Saturday is the last Club race for this Harrier season. We are holding the Consolation/Turkey Trot races. These will be held at Avalon Park.  We will meet at 1.30pm on the stopbank near the duckpond.
The Under 14s will run 2km, the Under 20s will run 5km, and the Seniors and Masters will run 10km. You will also be asked to guess your time for the Turkey Trot.
This Saturday we also have a team competing at the Road Relays in Christchurch. We hope you have fun and give it your best.  We await results.
Thank you for pitching in to help clean up the clubrooms last Saturday, and we will be returning next April.

For those who want to enjoy a relaxed hour long run, you are welcome to join Steve Robertson (Deputy Club Captain) who leads a pack run from the Lower Hutt Shoe Clinic at 6pm every Thursday evening. The packs go out for around an hour. Please meet at the Shoe Clinic, High Street, Lower Hutt by 5.55pm.


The Shoe Clinic

The Shoe Clinic has once again confirmed that it will continue to sponsor HVH for yet another year. For every dollar members spend on product at the Lower Hutt Shoe Clinic, the Shoe Clinic will donate 10% back to HVH at the end of the year. All you have to do is tell Rob and staff that you are a member of HVH and they will record your purchase to ensure it contributes to a donation for the club.

Supporting the Shoe Clinic means you are supporting the club.

The Mad Butcher

The Lower Hutt Mad Butcher has once again agreed to support our club by providing sausages for our club run day barbeques. We appreciate the support the Mad Butcher gives us and ask members to return this support by considering purchasing your meat produce from the Lower Hutt Mad Butcher.
