The Governors Bay to Lyttelton Road Race on Saturday, 8 September 2018 is an annual 10km race that has been popular year after year, with this year being the 57th event.
This Handicap Race open to all runners, which means you estimate the time it will take you to run 10km in advance. Start times will be based on your estimated finish, and starters will go in different waves. The theory is that if everybody runs to their handicap time they should finish together which gives it a unique ending. Organised by the Methodist Harriers club, this race is one of Canterbury’s longest-running events.
Sponsor Aromaunga - Baxters Flowers take things one step further to make this event stand out. Everyone is a winner here and gets to take a single bloom home to remember their special run. There are also special bouquets for the podium finish placeholders and 10 floral spot prizes up for grabs.
