Huntly Half Marathon Competition

The Huntly Half Marathon is a well-established event on the running calendar and has a strong fan base, attracting more than 2000 walkers and runners from Auckland, the Waikato and central North Island.

Greatest Little Run Run in the Universe Competition

The Greatest Little Fun Run in the Universe is a 2K, 5K or 10K run or walk through the Waitakere bush. All proceeds go directly to Laingholm Primary School, the "Greatest Little School in the Universe". 

All events start and end at Laingholm Primary School on an out and back course which is mainly off road on gravel and 4WD tracks.

Rotorua Marathon Competition Winner

The winner of the Rotorua Marathon competition was Craig Price from Papamoa who will be running the full marathon.

I'll also be there on Saturday April 28th running the full marathon; if you're running any of the events be sure to look out for me in my red running shirt with the website address front and back in white.

Events coming up over the next two weeks

Recurring weekday events

Group Training

Until Next Week..

I'll be supporting my wife Jane from the sidelines on April 1st as she runs her first ever half marathon at Whenuapai (and she's also running the 10K at Run Auckland this weekend).

I think I'll probably run the Riverhead Adventures 50K on Easter Monday (that's April 9th) and then I'll be running the Rotorua Marathon on April 28th.

Chris Hope's race report for the Tarawera Ultra Marathon 85K 2012

I found the first section from the start to the Okareka aid station the easiest and then got progressively slower on the next two legs to Okataina then Tarawera Falls as the terrain got more up and down hilly and more walking was required. I carried this plan out pretty well but as it turned out didn’t eat enough and couldn’t face any more gels after the first 5, so didn’t end up taking in enough calories to make up for what I was burning.
