Lizzy’s day in Grand Traverse
Lizzy Bunckenburg provided the individual highlight of the Grand Traverse on Sunday by winning the women’s section in outstanding fashion.
Bunckenburg, a 22- year- old who attends Whitireia, handled the demanding running-kayakingmountainbiking course around Porirua with aplomb.
She is a member of the Mana Kayak Club and the Titahi Bay Surf Life Saving Club.
There were 883 competitors in the various sections – multi-sport, duathlon, paddle only, mountainbike only, run only and fun run/ walk.
Starters in the fun run/walk take off along Titahi Bay Beach.
