Entries are now open for the 2013 Waitakere Charity Half Marathon and 11km Fun Run.
The Event will be on the 13th October 2013
The event centre is at the Trusts Stadium like previous years and the course will be the same as last year starting and finishing on the Douglas Track at the Trusts Stadium.
In pursuit of
city and national objectives in fitness, health and battle against
inactivity and obesity, the Waitakere Charity Fun Run & Half
Marathon provides something for everyone: an 11km walk or run or the
challenge of a half marathon. While the half marathoners are very
serious(some of them anyway) this is all about community and everyone having a go!
This WESTY Trust event has contributed enormously to the well-being
of Waitakere. It started 16 years ago with 237 entrants and has
grown into an iconic event attracting more than 1,000 entries.
Profits from the event goes to the WESTY Trust whose aim, is to support and
promote talented youth in Waitakere City in respect of their
aspirations in sport, education and/or cultural pursuits. Some of this money goes to North Piha Surf Lifesaving Club for the development of junior
lifeguards in return for the surf club
providing the marshals for the run.
