Ronald McDonald House 5KM RUN/WALK

​​​​​​​5km (The course has not been officially measured to IAAF standards)

Prams and wheelchair entrants are welcome in the 5km event, the other courses are not suitable. Wheelchair entrants need to get in touch with the race organiser before entering to discuss the criteria for entering.

Our family friendly 5km option will start and finish at the historic Stead Street wharf.  The walkway will take you around Pleasure Bay lagoon, where you can see wildlife such as ducks and swans, then across the Roger Sutton boardwalk up to a viewpoint to enjoy views of the estuary and the lagoon.  Then it's back to the finish line and you can take in more of the history of the wharf area.

This year we are supporting the Ronald McDonald House South Island.  For every individual entry we will donate $5 to the Ronald McDonald House to help them support families who must travel for their child's medical treatment.  

We think they provide an important service and are proud to support them in their mission to offer families free accommodation and support during this time.
