A Mudtastic Pursuit

Getting ready to go

The 2014 Portobello Paddock Pursuit on Sunday 9th of November saw nearly 400 participants run, jump, climb and slither through a challenging course at the Portobello Domain. With a warm day many people brought their deck chairs and picnics and made the pursuit a great family day out. The Portobello Paddock Pursuit has grown from 220 entries in 2013 to 390 in 2014 and is steadily becoming a regular on the family friendly event circuit for Dunedin. So much of the pursuit’s success comes from the hardworking local organising committee who put in so much effort to ensure everyone has fun and the event runs well and safely. The other aspect of the event is the generosity of local businesses and sponsors such as Cycleworld, Cartridge World, Portobello Deli, Portobello Volunteer Fire Brigade, Am I Fit, Sport Otago, Remax Real Estate and so many more. This has been a fantastic fundraiser for Portobello School and a great event for the  Community, we’re looking forward to seeing everyone back next year.
