Great South Vets, and the Humane Society of New Zealand, invite all runners, joggers, walkers, crawlers, and lounge lizards, to join our Charity Challenge Team by jogging with us in the Ports of Auckland - Round the Bays - 8.4 km - Fun Run, at 9:00am on Sunday 28th February 2021. (0 days to go)
How will we raise funds?
For each of the first 10 team members who can beat, veterinarian, William Baird, over the 8.4 km journey, Great South Vets will donate $1,000.00. So there is a potential for a donation of up to $10,000.00 to the Humane Society from Great South Vets. But there is a catch. And here it is. All team members who are slower than William, will need to donate $10.00 to the Humane Society.
How can you join our team?
Go to the Round the Bays website ( HERE ) and register by clicking the ENTER NOW button, then choose the Event Entry or Family Pass option, then in the Team Selection window you will see three buttons titled, Join a Team, Create a Team, and Skip Teams, click the Join a Team button, and type the words GSV Charity Team 21 (our team name), then click the Search button. Our team name will appear with a Join this Team button, click this button, then follow the instructions to complete your registration. The fee is from $35 to $50, depending on the date you register. When filling in your details, select Joggers (Red Group 50-80mins) in the Start Group input. We will pick up your bib for you, and give it to you at 9:00 am race day, before the start time of 9:30 am. For run details see Round the Bays FAQS. Anyone, from snails to Olympic champions, can join our team.
Where to go on the day?
Everyone who has entered our team are to meet no later than 9:00 am in the Joggers (Red bibs) start area on Quay St between Tapora St and Tangihua St. We will distribute the race bibs to all team members at that time. You can race, run, jog, or walk, but most of all have fun. You have until 12:15 pm to finish. Thats 2¾ hours. About 1 km every 20 minutes (a leisurely walk). William will most likely walk? / jog? / run? / race?
Where to go after the event?
When you go under the finish arch, pick up your Finishers Medal and a team member will greet you, and show you how to get to Madills Farm, which is just a short 10 minute walk from the finish area, where we will be celebrating our run with a Sizzling Summer BBQ.
