The Waitakere Charity Half Marathon and 11km Fun Run is back again for its 16th year on the 13 October, bigger and better than ever.
As well as the half marathon and the Fun Run, organisers The Westy Trust have brought back the 2km Kids Fun Run introduced last year and the 21km relay which has three categories: adults and schools Years 5-8 and Years 9-13.
The start finish is on the Douglas Track & Field at the Trusts Arena. For details and on-line entry forms go to www.waitakerehalf.co.nz.
Some proceeds are donated to the North Piha Surf Lifesaving Club for the development of junior lifeguards, in return for the surf club providing the marshals for the run.
