DORNE CUP Saturday 11 June 2016
This year is the 90th running of the Dorne Cup.  The Dorne Cup was presented to the Club by the Dorne’s who were among the original members of Hutt Valley Harriers. The Dorne Cup was first competed for in 1925 and has been part of the annual inter club scene ever since. There were only two years, during the World War II when the Dorne Cup was not competed.

This year all competitors will receive a special commemorative competitor ribbon to mark the 90th running of the race.

We will need the support of all club members to help set up and marshal the event. This includes helping at the start/finish distributing race numbers and recording finishers.  All marshal duties etc will be coordinated around competitors races so that you get to compete as well as help us out.
