Trailblazers, mud-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts take note – the annual Runway Challenge is returning to Hobsonville Point on Sunday, May 21.

This event is a fun run or walk over a 3, 5 or 10km course with a difference, that takes in the interesting and historic surrounds of the old Hobsonville Airbase and spectacular views of Hobsonville Point. The fun run, walk and optional obstacle adventures are designed for family fun.

Now in its seventh year, the event is proudly organized by the Henderson- West Auckland Lions Club. Entry fees start from $20 per person (or $25 on the day), with all profits from the event given back to the community through the Lions Club of Henderson- West Auckland Charitable Trust. Over $13,000 in community grants was awarded last year alone.

The event starts from the Hobsonville Point Primary School where entertainment and stalls will also be onsite between 9am and 1pm. For more information, please visit
