Junior running camp

This weekend 15 junior Hutt Valley Harriers headed off to Camp Elsdon in Porirua for a couple of days of fun and running.

the first run saw the team climb the heights of Colonial Knob with a 300m+ winding climb to glorious views from the top

The way down was shorter and steeper, but everyone made it in time for a trip to the pool before pizza and chips and a movie.

Sunday’s run was a scenic coastal route around Whitireia Park, from Transmitter Street, following the coast to Onepoto park. We finished the weekend with sport and a sausage sizzle in the park:
