The Hughes Memorial Cross Country is an annual event held on Queen's Birthday Weekend by the Hawera Harriers Club, catering for runners and walkers of all ages.
The main shield is fought between two clubs, and smaller shields have been introduced that are available to every club that they get to keep - one in the main mens race and one in the main womens race.
Prizes are also given to all members of teams (first four across the line) in the mens/womens18 races and above. Prizes for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd are given to those in the 45 and under age groups and 1st and 2nd from there up. Distances vary from 2km to 12km.
