Sport Wellington is saddened to hear that distance runner Bernie Portenski has passed away after her brave battle with cancer. Bernie was a true Wellington icon and was recognised by Sport Wellington as Personality of the Year in 1994 and again in 1999. Our thoughts go out to her family at this time.

Sport Wellington is committed to providing events which encourage and support participation and inclusivity, and which celebrate success. We believe in supporting the playground to the podium concept; everyone has the opportunity to reach their personal goals within the sport and recreation environment.
