Hello There

It has been awhile, but I am back – as guest editor while Katherine kicks her heels up in the UK.

Cornwall Park

How fabulous is Cornwall Park? It is beautiful any time of year but especially in Spring. A bunch of faithfuls turn up week after week. You too could be one of them….think about it.

Is that Benji photo bombing the bottom left? Note the holograms of our travelling friends looking on. They are wishing they were there too.


Tony Jackson Ironman Scholarship

There has been some fabulous news announced by Ironman NZ recently.

 We are delighted to announce that the Tony Jackson Scholarship is opening for a second round of applicants for 2018.

We received a number of quality applications earlier this year (including winner Jason Young), so together with Verna Cook-Jackson we have decided to award a second scholarship for the 2018 event.

Interested? Then get your application in.



O’Hagan’s Run

One athlete all too familiar with Ironman has been tearing it up around the Viaduct and the Wynyard Quarter. Check out these results.

Patti is currently 9th woman. What an awesome effort Patti. Go you.

Does this sound like you? Here’s how you can join Patti on a weekly running habit.

The O’Hagan’s Series is run on Tuesday nights starting at 6pm from O’Hagan’s Irish Bar at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland. The course is measured out and back 5km around the Viaduct.

The entry fee is $8. Every finisher receives a free beer, wine or OJ and goes into the spot prize draw at 7pm. Register at O’Hagan’s from 5.15pm.


It’s summer. Get Moving!
