PwC Foundation Charity Relay gets off to a great start

On Friday 27 February 2015, I went down at the request of the Neonatal Trust and took some photos of the start of the PwC Foundation Charity Relay. The start was at the Wharewaka in front of the NZX building on Wellington’s waterfront. It then headed over a largely ‘off-road’ run through to Te Marua. From here, each team choose to either have runners or mountain bikers complete the 18km Rimutaka Incline trail to Cross Creek, before an on-road relay which took runners to Martinborough in the Wairarapa. Here are a few of the photos that I got that I particularly liked:
