Ahoy there me hearties! The 2015 Portobello Paddock was an absolute blast once again with plenty of mud, slime and water for everyone! With a damp but warm day on Sunday, organisers were a little worried about the numbers. They needn’t have worried with over 400 children and adults taking part in the muddy challenge. With proceeds of the event going to Portobello School the organisers were overwhelmed with the generosity of the volunteers, community groups and sponsors who made the 2015 Portobello Paddock Pursuit a great success. There were plenty of challenges in the course to keep everyone on their toes and active, and plenty of the wet stuff to keep everyone happy. Many thanks to Hartley Bulger Patrick for being the photographer for the day (Click on the pictures to see in full size). Look forward to seeing everyone back again next year!
Our event is not possible without the generosity and assistance of our main sponsors; Cycleworld, Portobello Deli, Cartridge World, Sport Otago, Clearwater Contracting and our own Portobello Volunteer Fire Brigade.
