You have to be in to win but luckily there is still time to enter the 2016 Hobsonville Point Runway Challenge.

Fast approaching on Sunday May 15, this year’s charity event will feature spot prize giveaways, including a $100 Countdown voucher, a pharmacy voucher and goodies for the home. For the first time, event organizers, the Henderson-West Auckland Lions Club, also have a limited number of event t-shirts for sale. All entry fees and any profit from the merchandise will be redistributed back into the community, with over $7000 given away in 2015.

The course for this year’s event will follow a different route, with participants able to walk or run 3, 5 or 10km as individuals or teams and complete optional obstacles along the way. The Hobsonville Point Primary School grounds will host entertainment and stalls from 9am to 1pm, providing a day out for all the family.

“It’s a great event for kids – that’s what it’s really all about,” says Runway Challenge Committee Secretary, Shelley Robb. “But it’s also one of the few running events held in winter and one of the last for the season so it’s a really good one for people of all ages to take part in. Plus we’ve got lots of prizes to be won and awesome t shirts for sale so there’s something for everyone in the family.”

Entry fees are $20 per person via, or $25 per person on the day.
