A BOUTIQUE RUNNING EVENT
November 18th and the 3rd Lochmara Lodge half marathon runners will be off out of Picton Harbour on their Beachcomber cruise Catamaran to the Anakiwa Start line.
The course is standout beautiful. Running (or walking) on a journey through paradise. Beech trees Bellbirds and Bays. The trail twists and turns, ups and downs as it delivers you to the finish line at Lochmara Lodge So many say “Lochmara Lodge is a destination no one ever wants to leave.”
After your 1 hour cruise from Picton on the inner Sounds to Anakiwa (Home of Outward Bound) you will have time for a coffee and a brief walk to the start at Tiromoana. If you are a bit slow or want to do the half at a brisk walk you will start 30 minutes before the “guns of the runs”. You will have the same opportunities to win spot prizes and fun prizes as everyone on the adventure. The podium will be there to celebrate the success of the speed bunnies.
What sort of time will it take? Jeremy McKenzie (the winner in 2015) polished it off in 1hr 30 whilst others ran/walked the course in nearer to 3 hours.
We are here for you with a very generous cut off time of 3 hours 30mins and along the way you will be entertained by people you would never expect to see maybe…Donald Trump ... He loves the people of Marlborough!!
So train up a bit. Pop in your entry for a celebration of the fabulous inner Queen Charlotte Sounds by conquering the course on Saturday November 18th. We are limited to 100 runners /walkers so celebrate the 2017 Spring in style and enter now.
Lochmara Lodge prize giving and barbecue is something not to be missed and you will join the Beachcomber once more to be back in Picton by 2.30. What an adventure!
The Blenheim Charity ‘The Bread of Life’ will benefit from the voluntary work of the organisers and are the beneficiary of this event.
