Bill Hobbs Anniversary Race - 11 August 2007Olympic Club members

This 4 mile cross country handicap race held at Curletts Reserve, commemorated 50 years since Bill Hobbs arrived in New Zealand from England and first raced with the Olympic Harrier Club.

The testing but enjoyable course was set by Club President Alex Cook and incorporated an optional muddy water crossing a couple of fences and a few undulations.

Bill and his family provided a lavish afternoon tea that was enjoyed by all except the two lassies and young lad that had difficulties navigating from the course to the hall.

Bill was presented with a running singlet from his old English Club Thames Valley, kindly organized by Paul Coughlan.
