Marines Event


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


The eighth annual Kapiti Joggers and Walkers "In the Footsteps of the Marines" charity event takes place at Whareroa Farm, north of Paekakariki, on Sunday 26th May 2019. This year's event will be entirely on Whareroa Farm and Campbell's Mill Road, and includes bush and clay hill tracks and unsealed roads.

There will be three race categories:

1. Race Walkers

2. Social Walkers and Slow Joggers

3. Runners

A good level of fitness is required.

This year we will have only two starts:

• 9.30 am – Race Walkers, AND Social Walkers and Slow Joggers (10.3 kms)

• 10.00 am – Runners (12.2 kms)

Both courses involve hill tracks and unsealed roads, and have uphill sections of approximately 4 – 5 kms in total. Distances are approximate.

Each category will have its own coloured race numbers and its own finish chute.

Children under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult.

In the event that tracks in Whareroa Farm are unusable, an alternative course will be provided.
