On Sunday 28th October, the Waikouaiti Beach Run/Walk event was held at the Waikouaiti Sports Park.

Due to its success last year it was run again by the Waikouaiti Friends Of the School (FOTS) team as a fundraiser for Waikouaiti School. There was a ‘marginal’ weather forecast which may have deterred some people, however the weather remained dry for the event and there were over 80 entries with competitors coming from as far away as Geraldine.

With the outgoing tide, contestants for the 10km course ran, or walked, the full length of the beach to the edge of the Karitane estuary, before returning to the finish at Waikouaiti Park. There was also a shorter 5km and 2km event.

The 10km winner, Brad Goodall, completed the run with a very smart time of 39.16 minutes. Also impressive was young Jake Harkness at only 7 years of age coming second in the 5km event.

Organisers wish to thank the sponsors for the great prizes: Farmlands Cooperative, KM Personal Training and Nidd Real Estate. Also a big thank you to the course marshals and everyone who helped out to run this fun event.
