The TransWorks Half Marathon and 6K fun run and walk at Pukekohe on Sunday, 16 October 2016 is organised by the Pukekohe Joggers and Walkers Club.
This event is not happening in 2017, but will return in 2018.
Announcement from the Pukekohe Joggers and Walkers Club regarding the cancellation:
It is with huge regret that we have to cancel our 2017 event. The reason is due to several of the roads on our Half Marathon course being in a dangerous condition because of all the new subdivision activity. Potholes, dirt, stones, rocks and debris are littering the roads and we feel that it is not acceptable to have runners and walkers going through these areas.
We do not have time to make changes to our course for this year but may have to look at a different course for the Half Marathon in 2018.
Please accept our deepest apologies for this decision that we have had to make on Health and Safety grounds.
Regards from the Committee.
Both events start and end at the Pukekohe Joggers and Walkers Club clubrooms on Station Rd in Pukekohe. The Half Marathon is a single lap loop and the 6K an out and back.
Post race facilities include showers, food, liquid refreshments etc. Spot prizes will be drawn after the last finisher -you must be present to claim your prize. All finishers of runs/walks are eligible for the spot prizes.
