What a sight it was on Sunday 9 March, as over 700 people donned their blue shirts and ran for Leisure!
After taking part in a six week training programme, Auckland Council Pools and Leisure took an awesome team made up of members, staff and keen participants to Ports of Auckland Round the Bays – one of the world’s largest fun runs (and surely its prettiest!)
We were the second largest team on the day, and we took away third place – not a bad effort! However, each and every runner’s individual effort is what truly counts. We had many participants who had never run a step before merrily sprinting off the start line – and just as merrily running over the finish line, 8.4km later. If you were on our team, you are awesome. No other words for it.
If you weren’t on our team, we’ll be doing it all again next year, so watch this space! And hey, why not check out all the brilliant photos of the day for a boost of added motivation in the meantime?!
