IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE MARINES
The eighth annual Kapiti Joggers and Walkers “In the Footsteps of the Marines” event takes place at Whareroa Farm, north of Paekakariki, on Sunday 26th May 2019.
Please be sure to update your email details when completing your entry!
This year’s event will again be entirely in Whareroa Farm and on Campbell’s Mill Road.
There will be three categories, as in previous years:
• Race Walkers
• Social Walkers and Slow Joggers
However, there will be only two starts:
• 9.30 am – Race Walkers, AND Social Walkers and Slow Joggers
• 10.00 am – Runners
Each category will have its own coloured race numbers and its own finish chute.
There will be a longer and a shorter course:
• 10.3 kms for Social Walkers and Slow Joggers
• 12.2 kms for Race Walkers AND Runners.
Both courses involve hill tracks and unsealed roads, and have uphill sections of approximately 4 – 5 kms in total. Distances are approximate.
A good standard of fitness is required.
Children under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult.
In the event that tracks in Whareroa Farm are unusable, an alternative course will be provided.
Our event is kindly sponsored by Pak’nSave, the Print Room, Cityfitness, and other local businesses that have generously donated spot prizes.
