Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 9 Mar ’13, 9:00am


Laingholm Primary School, 54 Victory Rd, Laingholm


All Ages

10km, 5km and 2km fun run with a difference! This fun run/walk will be in its sixth year with over 400 participants enjoying the unique and scenic course in the event last year.

The 10km course starts at Laingholm Primary School. A loop of the school field to spread the participants out is followed by a short descent to the horse paddocks. You run through the horse paddocks, then around the outside of Owens Green (a nice park). Then it's out onto the footpath of Huia Road. You only have around 400m of footpath, then across the road to the gravel road that heads towards the far end of the dam reservoir. You take the first left and do a 1km-ish out and back along a flat grass 4WD track. When you arrive back on the gravel road, you turn left and follow this gravel road (ups and downs) until you arrive at the turn around spot just before a stream crossing at the far end of the Lower Nihotupu Dam Reservoir. From here, its back to the finish the way you came (but you don't need to do the out and back along a flat grass 4WD track on the way back).

5km course description - Follows the 10km but after the out and back along the grass 4WD track you go back to the finish, the same way as you came.

2km(ish) course description - This course is aimed at the wee kids - it will be a fun loop around the school grounds at the event centre. They will do as many loops as they can in 10 minutes.

All funds raised go to the local Laingholm Primary School - the school that serves the the area we run so many events in.

This is a Lactic Turkey event you can bring the whole family to - we'll be doing a 10 minute course for the wee kids too!
