New addition to iconic
Lake to Lighthouse Multisport Race
The Wairoa Community Development Trust has announced a new option
to the iconic Northern HB Multisport race in an endeavour to provide
more accessible options for local and regional competitors.
The Sport Hawkes Bay Waikaremoana Classic + Duathlon will run
concurrently with day one of the Genesis Energy Lake to Lighthouse
Challenge, starting and ボnishing in Tuai Village on Saturday 19th
The 39km Classic (triathlon) option will commence with a 15km mountain
bike ride to Home Bay, Lake Waikaremoana. A 12km loop kayak stage on
the Lake will return paddlers to Home Bay before a 12km bush trail run
across the Ngamoko range back to the Tuai Start / Finish line.
The 27 km Duathlon option will exclude the kayak stage, with competitors
transitioning at Home Bay from mountain bike directly into the run. Both
options will be open to individuals or relay teams in three age groups;
Rangatahi / student (15-17yrs) Pakeke / Adult (18-39yrs) and Kaumatua /
Veteran (40yrs+) Teams will be classiボed by male, female or mixed gender
and there will be special awards for those individual and team place
getters who are able to nominate an Iwi aポliation with entry.

Coach set to re-apply
Top coach: Magpies co-coach Peter Russell at training.
The Hawke's Bay Magpies ITM
Cup championship winning co-
coach Peter Russell admits he
was surprised to learn he would
have to re-apply for his job for
Russell says he still wants the
job, despite being alerted by
Hawke's Bay Rugby Union chief
Mike Bishop the position would
be advertised, with applications
closing on October 5..
Surprised . . . definitely.
Especially after we achieved
what we had set out to do, which
was to get back into the
Premiership round,'' said Rus-
sell, who along with co-coach
Tom Coventry, led the Magpies
to three consecutive Air New
Zealand Cup semifinal
appearances from 2007 to 2009,
before clinching the champion-
ship this season.
Russell said the move had
been prompted by Coventry
being unable to prepare the
Magpies next pre-season
because of his new assistant
coaching role with the Chiefs.
Mike Bishop said his union
was keeping its options open-
about a return to a co-coaching
scenario for next season.
We want to have the option of
doing either a single or dual
coaching role - we will flesh that
out in our interview process,
Russell was confident'' he
had the runs on the board to be
the successful applicant.
I want the job ... I said that
after the finals in September.
We have a good bunch of guys
re-signed for next year and I
want to continue with our
ambitions in the Premiership.''
Outstanding: Sacred Heart College's 1st XI hockey
team finished the B Division of the HB Secondary
School competition in first place recently, beating
CHB College 5-1. The team went through the initial
rounds of the season unbeaten and had just two
goals scored against them. They are coached by
former New Zealand hockey Olympian Robyn Hocking
and managed by Craig Petherick.
Hawke's Bay surf clubs came out on top in
the DHL In It For Life Awards, with
Waimarama Surf Life Saving Club's Phil
Harman winning Instructor of the Year and
the award for Innovation of the Year going to
Pacific Surf Lifesaving Club.
The club's roving patrols using bicycles
have been recognised as an environmentally-
friendly, cost-effective and low maintenance
patrolling method. The bikes were engin-
eered to carry patrol equipment including
rescue tubes, fins, VHF radios and first aid
kits and helped to extend the club's patrol
capability to high-risk areas on the beach.
General manager of programmes and
services, Brett Sullivan, said the awards
were highly sought-after in surf lifesaving.
The DHL In It For Life awards luncheon
pays tribute to the significant time and effort
our members devote to keeping our beaches
safe during the summer months. Many of
them dedicate summer after summer to sup-
port our cause and we are delighted to
formally recognise their huge commitment
and enthusiasm. We are very proud of the
winners,'' he said.
