Marines Event


With the generous support of our sponsors, present . . .


In the Footsteps of the Marines Race has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID 19.

We had hoped to just postpone to November 1st, but this would have meant two events to plan within 6 months, and this year at a time when people are getting busy with end of year prep. The next running of this event will therefore be on May 30th 2021 so put this date in your diary now.

Donations from event proceeds will go to local charities and groups. Our main charity this year will be Riding for the Disabled.

The Entry Fee is $35 for those who register online via EventPlus from 1st October (preferred option to automate the system) or via postal entries received before 11.55pm on Friday 30th October (download printable form here). Late entries $40 can be made with cash on the day but please arrive in plenty of time if you need to use this option. Download, complete and bring the late entry form here if possible to speed the registration process.

Allocation of race numbers on the day begins at 8.15am. DO NOT leave it until the last minute as there may be many ahead of you in the queue. Briefing is 10 minutes before your race start time.

Spot prizes will be awarded to lucky number holders with the greatest number of these going to those who register before the day of the event.

Following completion of the event, entrants can go to the Ramaroa Centre across the road for a hot BBQ sausage and tea, coffee or juice.
