Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 9, No. 10. August, 7, 1946
The Novice Race was held early in the season, and Eccles won in a convincing manner. He is a very promising runner who will almost certainly be picked for the Provincial team.
The Sherwood Cup contest was restored to its original locality this year and was held a Paekakariki. Over three miles of real steeplechase country. Hawke led the field home with Eccles second and Saxton third. The cup is awarded on a handicap basis and was won by McDiarmid.
Our normal Saturday runs have led us over a wide variety of country, including Karori, Seatoun, Johnsonville, Normandale, Paekakariki, Tinakori Hill and even Pencarrow. There is no doubt of the truth in our slogan: "Join the Harrier Club and see Wellington."
