Battling the clock

A small crowd watches the University Clocktower race at lunchtime yesterday.

Back for its second year after an eight-year hiatus, the event was organised by the Hill City-University athletics club as part of the University of Otago’s Orientation Week festivities.

Twenty-eight runners took part.

Four ran around the university’s registry building before the clock’s 12th strike, in less than 53.50 seconds.
