This is a flat 5km club race along south coast waterfront starting at Island Bay. This is normally our first club race of each season. It is the traditional opening race of the season where members will compete for the new Centennial Cup, formerly the Le Gaye Rosebowl. It is a sealed handicap event where our handicapper has estimated your time over 5km to determine your handicap. Everyone starts together and the finishing times are adjusted by your handicap to determine your net time and the overall winner of the Cup.
We normally meet beforehand at St Hilda’s Church, 311 The Parade, to store gear. Then we return afterwards for an afternoon tea.
