The Foxton Beach Fun Run, starting from the Foxton Beach Surf Club, is organised by the Foxton Lions Club. There is a 21km half marathon, and 10km & 5km fun run/walk events.
The 20 & 10km events go along the beach to Himatangi. The 5km events go south along the beach and turn up the estuary. All of the events are out and back courses with marshals along the way.
Proceeds from this event go to the Foxton Surf Club, Manawatu Coast Guard and Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter.
