Kaiapoi Rangiora Fun Run and Walk

The annual fun run and walk between Kaiapoi and Rangiora is an iconic part of North Canterbury's calendar, organised by the local Lions Clubs from both towns. It reverses direction each year and in 2017 is from Rangiora to Kaiapoi.

Enter on the day, or pre-purchase tickets from New World Kaiapoi and Rangiora, Blackwells Kaiapoi, Kaiapoi I-Site and Northern Outlook newspaper Ashley Street, Rangiora.

This is a fun event that caters for all fitness levels. There are serious runners, but the majority are individuals, groups, families and children who want the challenge of jogging or walking from one town to the other.
