The Shoe Clinic Asics 5km series was a huge success. We started out with a small group on the 10th January and by the end of the series (7th Feb) we had over 40 whanau including tamariki having taken part in the event! It was awesome to see everyone enjoying movement, we had a great spread of times from our fast bunnies coming across the line in under 20 minutes to our beginners who walked the course and built up their confidence and speed over the series. Some of our tamarki competed in their own 1.6 race!
We endured all weather from wind, rain, and blazing 31 degree days! It didn’t deter our tribe, even those that were injured joined us on the last week with their dogs and completed one lap! We were very lucky to also have Elaine from Podiatrymed out on the course with our whanau, supporting their running efforts and giving encouragement to keep running!
Our sights are now set on the Christchurch City2Surf in March where many of our whanau have already committed to either the 6km or 14km event!
Tutū te puehu!
ps don’t forget our running seminar with the awesome Elaine from Podiatrymed
