About the Event
Remember, what goes up must come down!
This is our traditional King and Queen of the Mountain race. It's 5 km up and down Puketāpapa, Mt Roskill and every year we use it as a charity fundraiser to help local athletes follow their dreams. This year, one of our club committee members is trying to set up a new local parkrun. As part of her application, she needs to buy a defibrillator and proceeds from the event will go towards this.
Walkers and walk / joggers meet for a briefing at the club house at 1pm. Start straight away after the briefing from the club house. Be back for prize giving at 3:15.
Runners meet at 2pm at the Lovelock Track. Jog to the start / finish together. Be back at the club for prize giving at 3:15.
From the corner of Richardson and Maioro, hoon down the South Western Cycleway until you get to car-free Puketāpapa Mt Roskill. Run up the mountain on the road, take in the views from the top by doing a loop around on the grass and then make your way back to the start / finish the same way back at the corner of Richardson and Maioro. It's 5km.
Historic trophies for the first male and female club members home and tasty treats for other achievers. There will be a yummy bake sale so bring change. All runners / walkers very welcome!
Race entry is $10 for adults and $5 for U18. All entrants MUST register and purchase tickets online before the event. No cash will be taken on the day.
