Many traditions come with the festive season, for SRC it’s the 5km handicap race.
But wait, there is a twist … it’s not how fast you are but how accurate you are based on your predicted time. If you are more than 3.25% quicker than you say, don’t expect to be on the podium. That’s the qualifying limit to have a counting time. (For those who need some easier maths, it’s about 2 seconds per minute).There is more than just bragging rights this year, there is a trophy up for grabs.

Hosted by Methodist Harriers Club. This is a 10km road race with a little twist. The staggered start based on your 5km time makes for an exciting race day. Earlier start than our usual winter season events, the first racers head out at 9.30am.
Course Profile: An undulating course with short – medium uphills and a fast downhill leading into the final flat straight and onto the Lyttelton Recreation Reserve.
Start Time: 9.30am (time staggered due to a chasing start)
Location: Starting from Jetty Rd in Governors Bay, you will finish at Charlotte Jane Quay in Lyttelton Harbour
Bus to start: Parking at Governors Bay can be very tight so the event offers a ride from the finish at Lyttelton Recreation Reserve to the start for just $10.00. Bus leaves at 8:15am and gear bags are transported back to the finish.
