Run over the same scenic out and back course as the popular Shoe Clinic Napier Bluewater5 fun runs and walks, the "Extra for Eric" is a special fundraising Fun Run and Walk with all proceeds going to Olympic hopeful Eric Speakman's Olympic Qualifying Campaign.
Note: your Bluewater5 season pass does not apply to this event.
Eric needs to drop another 4 seconds off his 1500m PB to qualify for the Rio Olympics. To try and achieve this he is looking to 'live and train like a professional' for three months, training at altitude in USA and then racing in Europe. This effort is entirely self funded, so every little bit helps.
You can walk or run over either 2km or 5km, starting and finishing behind the Bluewater Hotel in Napier. There will be Spot Prizes available including a major prize from the Shoe Clinic, Napier of a $250 Appraisal/Fitting/Shoe voucher drawn from all entrants. Olympic Themed Fancy Dress is encouraged.
