Flowers are always a winner 


This popular & enduring fixture on the yearly running calendar is one much beloved by the runners of Christchurch.  Organised by the Methodist Harriers club, this race is one of Canterbury's longest-running events, and we celebrate the 60th running of this event in 2021.

So why is running this race to Lyttelton from Governor's Bay so popular?

We think the chasing starts help - it means there is always someone to catch and others coming from behind. It adds a real competitive edge, regardless of each individual's speed so attracts people of all abilities and ages.


The road surface is also easy to run on so while some entrants use this race to improve or smash out a fast time, others simply enjoy the atmosphere and pure joy of running with a view.

ALL are great reasons to run.

This race is also special as finishing is celebrated with artfully selected flowers. Podium finish placeholders take home a bouquet and there are 10 floral spot prizes up for grabs.  Best of all, every participant is a winner.  All race finishers take home a single bloom and can keep celebrating for days what they have achieved. People train really hard day in day out and we like to extend the great feeling one has, after completing a race, with flowers.


This race is proudly sponsored by Aromaunga Baxter Flowers
