Race Description

In pursuit of city and national objectives in fitness, health and battle against inactivity and obesity, the Waitakere Charity Fun Run & Half Marathon provides something for everyone: an 11km walk or run or the challenge of a half marathon. While the half marathoners are very serious(some of them anyway) this is all about community and everyone having a go!

This WESTY Trust event has contributed enormously to the well-being of Waitakere. It started 15 years ago with 237 entrants and has grown into an iconic event attracting more than 1,000 entries.

A portion of the income from entries is contributed to the North Piha Surf Lifesaving Club for the development of junior lifeguards. The surf club provides the marshals for the run. The balance goes to the WESTY Trust whose aim, is to support and promote talented youth in Waitakere City in respect of their aspirations in sport, education and/or cultural pursuits.
