This is an annual handicap race in Titahi Bay and is an occasion 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.
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 but 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.
