THE CAUSE

After three years of raising money for projects in Omokoroa we have decided to choose a charitable cause that is in the wider Bay of Plenty and close to our hearts.  This year all profits will be split between the Tauranga Community Food Bank and the Waihi Beach Surf Life Saving Club.  These are two crucial charities in our community that rely heavily on volunteers and donations so we are excited to be able to support them.

However, as a way of continuing to give back to the Omokoroa community who support us to host this event we have offered a financial incentive to local groups to help with Marshalling the event.  Please say hello as you run or walk past them as they play a key role in ensuring you don’t get lost and are safe out there on the course.

There will be a prize for the team that raises the most money and all the teams will enter a draw for a spot prize.  The prizes are worth $250 each and generously donated by Plastec Design and Manufacturing.  All the money you raise through the GiveaLittle page goes straight to The Waihi Beach Surf Life Saving Club and the Tauranga Community Foodbank - great causes to align your business with.

TIMING

Due to our event numbers growing this year we are having professional electronic timing of all the running events except the 2km Kids Dash. 

 

Walking events are not timed.

 

There is more information about how timing works on the FAQ page.
