About the Event
We're proud to be hosting the inaugural Te Auaunga Awa Lydiard Memorial Run, a 5km fun run along the brand new Te Auaunga walkway.
Starting from Owairaka Park and winding its way along the Te Auaunga walkway, underneath Richardson Road and over the stunning Te Whitinga bridge, this run will showcase the natural beauty of this inner-city jewel and pays tribute to the efforts of the Puketāpapa and Albert-Eden local boards in restoring and enhancing this long-neglected stream.
The course starts and finishes within view of the legendary Arthur Lydiard's house, where Olympians Peter Snell, Barry Magee, Murray Halberg and many more prepared for their training sessions.
Event registration opens from 1.30 on the day and the run kicks off at 2pm. Gold coin donation.
