The Ōmokoroa Coastal Challenge is back for the 4th year running so mark Sunday 11th November 2018 in your diary.
Like last year, this increasingly popular event will be based at the Western Avenue sports grounds, and this year we are raising money for the Tauranga Community Foodbank and the Waihī Beach Surf Life Saving Club. Feedback received from previous participants indicated the walk and run options were particularly popular as they gave people the chance to enjoy our beautiful peninsula at a more leisurely pace, versus whizzing past blindly on a bike. We are responding to this and celebrating all our enthusiastic walkers and runners by removing the duathlon event but adding a 15km running option. With the 2km kids’ dash, plus 5 & 10km walk and run events, there really is a distance to suit all abilities. It is also one of the cheapest events of its kind in the Bay, and this ensures everybody in our wider community can take part and enjoy the paradise that we are lucky enough to live in.
