Glorious Mud and Fun at the Paddock Pursuit

The second annual Portobello Paddock Pursuit held on Sunday at the Portobello Domain was a muddy and wet success, with over 220 kids and 30 adults taking part. The pursuit  course had everyone climbing, running, sliding and jumping over a range of obstacles designed to be challenging and fun for all ages. With support from Sport Otago and Am I Fit the Pursuit raised $1800 for the Portobello School. What makes the Pursuit such a great event is the local support from organisations and people like Bronwyn Anderson, Peninsula Pony Club, the A&P Society and the Peninsula Volunteer Fire Brigade. Along with their help and the assistance of the many volunteers who work on the day Portobello is able to put on a well organised, fun and safe event for everyone.  Click on the pictures below to view in full size.
