This is a social event now in its 9th year, designed to get people out for a walk along the Rotary Pathway. We have designed 4 events to cater to all fitness levels and physical abilities.

We have a varied array of participants from the very young to the young at heart and the finely tuned athletes to those with physical challenges who have inspired us and shown great determination in completing the event.

The Mega is a 28km run or walk. Participants will follow a clearly defined route through Hastings to the Showgrounds. The course then heads towards Whakatu before joining the Rotary Pathway at Pakowhai Park, adjacent to the Chesterhope Bridge. It then follows the Pathway to Ahuriri. The finish line is at Mitre 10 Mega Napier. Average time to complete is 5 hours. Due to course management, there is a cutoff point at the 15km point at Awatoto and participants should have passed this point by 9:30 am. The course and finish line will officially close at 1:30 pm.

The Half Mega is a 15km run or walk that starts at Awatoto - opposite the southern end of the Fertiliser Works - at 9 am. This event also follows the Pathway and finishes at Mitre 10 Mega Napier. Average time to complete is 2.5 hours.

The Short Mega is a 6.5km walk or run which starts behind Ocean Spa on the Marine Parade at 10 am. Average time to complete is 1.5hours

The Mega Meander is a 3.5km walk or meander starting at 10 am at Perfume Point Ahuriri. Average time to complete is 1 hour.

All proceeds raised go to CanTeen and are put towards the wonderful activities and camps they provide for their members. In the last 6 years we have been supporting CanTeen with this event we have raised over $100,000! These funds have gone into the vital services that CanTeen offer young people living with cancer and their families.
