This is the 9th running of the Paperplus Te Awamutu Athletics Club Golf Course Fun Run held at the Te Awamutu Golf Club on Kihikihi Road. After a postponement due to COVID 19 we are having another try.
Saturday 4th July. The race starts at 9.30am. This event is open to the Public and Registered Athletes
Click here to sign up and needs to be done by Thursday 2 July.
Prizegiving – due to COVID restrictions we are not holding a prizegiving this year. Whilst things may change by then we have a plan on the current rules and respect the wishes of our hosts. Also with many businesses crippled by the shutdown economy we think it is unreasonable to seek prizes. Accordingly, we have reduced entry costs.
An event for all abilities with the unique ability to race on a Golf Course with a rolling aspect and good underfoot conditions, suitable for spikes. Although adjacent to the main road the event offers a safe environment for families, with kids able to finish their 3k run whilst their parents continue in their own event.
There is a 3k run for Students $5, a 3k and 6k walk and 6k and 9k run, all $10. Online entries close at 10pm Thursday 2nd July. We much prefer ‘online’ entries however we will take late entries on the day but ask that you bring the correct cash. A ‘late’ fee of $5 will apply.
All athletes start at the same time and will complete one, two or three 3k circuits. Athletes will be issued with a race number and will receive a finishing time and certificate.
The Golf Course will reopen to Members at 11am. Please ensure you or your supporters do not run or walk on any of the Greens. It is a privilege to have access to the course – we don’t want to lose that. As we are running in July rather than April underfoot conditions will be much softer so please take care to cause minimal damage.
All proceeds go into a Travel Fund to assist our Club’s athletes on representative duties. Thanks for your support.
