Needle Relays

A relay race on road organised by Wellington Harriers. Founded in 2020, the Needle Relay replaced the Bays Relay, which was dropped from the events calendar due to the increasing challenge of and rising costs of road management.

The race is based at the Kilbirnie Wind Needle, from which laps 1, 3 and 5 go north for an outback 5km, while laps 2 and 4 head east for an out and back 3km.

The next event will be held in 2021.
