Wellington's Fastest Suburb is.... PLIMMERTON

27 February 2013

Thanks to everyone who came along to our tent on race day and took part in our little bit of inter-suburb fun at AMI Round the Bays 2013.

Normally at the Malaghan Institute we do serious research into things like cancer, infectious diseases and allergies, but for a bit of fun at AMI Round the Bays 2013 – and to help awareness for our cause – we decided to find out which Wellington suburb was the fastest.

The results are in, and we can tell you that Plimmerton came away with top honours. Those from Plimmerton who entered the Fastest Suburb competition clocked an average time of 4 mins and 34 seconds per kilometre (when both the 7km and half-marathon courses were combined). This made them a pretty swift suburb indeed.

So congratulations to everyone from Plimmerton who took part in the draw – you'll all be receiving an email soon about how to claim your special edition Plimmerton tee.
