Hawke's Bay Marathon, Half Marathon and 10km run / walk
5 December 2011
Run Walk Hawke's Bay has resolved to discontinue the Hawke's Bay marathon in its current format. Reasons include the significant decline in participants in recent years. It is sad to lose such a longstanding event. Comments from club members and the significant decline in entries signalled the event was not one favoured by our membes or the public. The club needs to respond to what our members and our target market require.
The club is considering holding a replacement event (which may have a relay component) on the various walkways in Hawke's Bay.Over Christmas we shall explore possible options/routes, type of event/distances and then trial it out with a local focus initially. If it proves successful we can then market it further afield.
