YMCA versus Muriwai Fun Run Walk Sunday 22nd June 9am



The YMCA Marathon Club vs Muriwai Surf Club Challenge is on again!  It’s time to prepare yourself for this multi surface event with something for everyone – bush, road, mud, hills, lake and beach.  The Surf Club wishes to mount a concerted challenge this year – we needyourhelp to win the Des Vercoe trophy back again!  Plan to head to the beach for the morning for some fun running or walking.


Here’s what you need to know:



  • Wear old shoes & socks (they will never be white again)

  • Uniform not required (but it helps the timekeepers if you can wear something that identifies you as a Muriwai member)

  • There are separate Runners & Walkers course.  The Walkers’ course is very scenic, finishes down the beach with the runners, will take about 90 minutes (same time as the average runner), and it doesn’t involve a lake or other such obstacles! Long Run is approximately 14km.

  • Visitors are welcome.

  • Meet at the Muriwai Surf Club (turn right at the shop directly opposite Waitea Rd).

  • All Runners & Walkers start at 10:00 am

  • There is a shorter route for any slower runners who don’t want to do the full distance.

  • Registrations on the day from 9am.

  • Please arrive in good time to enter & prepare for the start

  • Cold swim, hot showers, cold beer and hot sausages at the finish

  • Entry is by donation, $5+ per person, with all funds going to the Muriwai Surf Club.


Clubbies not running – we do need help to act as marshals, cook soup and to cook sausages.  Please Contact:  Andrew Evison ajevison@hotmail.com.


See you all there!!
