Cancellation of Rainbow Fun Triathlon 2017

The weather forecast for the weekend has got a lot worse over the past 24 hours – there is now a firm forecast of southerlies and heavy rain for both Saturday 11 March and Sunday 12 March mornings.

For that reason we’ve decided that it’s best for us to cancel the Rainbow Fun Triathlon for this year – basically on the grounds that it wouldn’t be any fun!

But we’ll try again next Pride Festival.

Change of location for Sunday 19 February run

Because of the Round the Bays run this weekend, this Sunday’s run (19 Feb) will occur in the Hutt Valley.  We’ll be gathering at the top of Cornish Rd, Korokoro, at 9am, and running towards the Korokoro Dam.   We’ll decide on somewhere for brunch afterwards! If anyone wants a lift, let me know.

Rainbow Sport and Culture Weekend

The Rainbow Sport and Culture Weekend is less than two weeks away.  The full programme is here:
It would be great to see a good turnout, especially at the Meet and Greet (the Mayor should be attending), and of course the fun run (or walk if you want to walk) on Sunday morning at 9am and the brunch at Karaka Cafe at Te Wharewaka at 11am.
Please note that the Capital Ocean Swim starts at 8am so parking will be in short supply so you might have to park a little further away so arrive early!
