What a super atmosphere it was last night at Hagley Park. It was magic to see everyone getting involved and great to catch up and put faces to the names and voices of the tri pounamu whānau who have joined us!
We had a wonderful mix of runners and walkers from pēpe – Matai, coming in under 25mins in his buggy with his pāpā – Te ao marama Apiata and māmā Sarah our first woman home. Congratulations also to David, Lou, Maania, Levi, Chris, Michelle, Tumanako, Nicola and Marge! And a special shout out to kaumātua – Peter for keeping Riwai and Rob focussed on completing fast laps! And to Elaine from Podiatrymed who was inspiring to many many of you, especially on the tough second lap.
It was great to see you all crossing the finish lines with big smiles.
See you all next week!
