Sprig + Fern Motueka 10k

Saturday 30 September 2023

Our Winter Running Programme takes us to Thorp Bush reserve in Motueka for the 3rd event in our Sprig + Fern 10k series.

Extend your range beyond your usual running spots and head out to Motueka. Run or walk part of the Great Taste Trail and the scenic Motueka Estuary. It's a fast, flat course with beautiful native flora and fauna to look at while you scoot along towards your PB.

Everyone welcome, members & non-members, walkers & runners.

There is a $10 entry fee for adult non-members. Free for members of Waimea Harriers & Athletics Nelson clubs and school/youth students.

Briefing: 2pm

Walkers start: 2:15pm

Or if you don't think you can do 10k on Saturday but still want to take part, find someone to pair up with for a 2-person relay with each of you doing 5k.
