Bernie Portenski Memorial open handicap race, St Timothy's Presbyterian Church, 16 Te Pene Ave, Titahi Bay Saturday, 20 Oct 2018, 13:30 to 15:00
Updated 9 Oct 2018 at 9:47 pm.
Join us in Titahi Bay for a free handicapped race to celebrate the end of the harrier season and to commemorate Bernie Portenski. While Bernie was a staunch Scottish member, she trained with and supported many members from other clubs. The overall winner on handicap will hold the Bernie Portenski Memorial Trophy for a year.
Lifestyle Sports was a long-time supporter of Bernie and her running exploits. It is donating two pairs of shoes and ten $20 vouchers as prizes towards the event.
We assemble at St Timothy's Presbyterian Church, 16 Te Pene Ave, Titahi Bay from about 1:30pm.
Post-race we return to the church hall for an afternoon tea and prize-giving.
The race starts at 2:05pm on the beach in front of the surf club at Titahi Bay.
The race distance is 9.1km with the mixed terrain (road, beach, grass) and the hill in the second half.
Also, please bring a plate to contribute to the afternoon tea.
We hope to see you there so we can celebrate Wellington’s Road and Cross Country Season and the friendly rivalries we all enjoy.
Walkers are going to have a group walk around the course at starting at 1pm
The J team and other kids will have a beach race of about 1.5-2k.
