Korokoro Track run

This Sunday (31 January 2021), we’re going to run the Korokoro Stream Track starting in Cornish St, Petone, at 9am. This is due to Interislander Swim occurring at Oriental Parade and the inevitable crush for parking. It’s also a good opportunity to run a different trail!

Rainbow Fun Triathlon cancelled

After looking at the most recent weather and sea forecasts for Saturday we have regretfully decided to cancel the event this year.

The weather forecast has deteriorated significantly (for both Saturday and Sunday) with higher winds that we hoped for, and continuous rain through the morning.

We’re very sorry to disappoint all the participants and volunteers, but we don’t feel we could guarantee a fun (and safe) event in the forecast conditions.

Swimming, cycling and running in the wind and rain isn’t the fun event we’d hoped for!

But thanks for your enthusiasm – and enjoy the rest of the Pride Festival.
