finish winter by setting a realistic goal, and head into springtime with a sense of achievement,’’ Wilke said.
In 2016, a group of Sport Canterbury’s Green Prescription participants also used the 2.5km distance as an excuse to set – and achieve – a springtime goal.
The 6km and 2.5km courses are suitable for buggies, according to Wilke. As in 2016, the 11km and 6km courses will take walkers and runners alongside Lake Pegasus to the finish.
‘‘The course is scenic, with stunning vistas to the foothills of North Canterbury, appealing to many participants who return year after year,’’ Wilke said.
Sport Canterbury introduced the event in response to sport and recreation opportunities being affected by the earthquakes.
‘‘Cantabrians welcomed the chance to warm up at the end of winter and Hellers have been an awesome fit as sponsor, with their history and culture of community involvement. We are grateful for their continued partnership.’’
