Spring of­fi­cially sprang on Septem­ber 1, and it’s not too late to shake off the win­ter by get­ting the run­ning shoes out and en­ter­ing the Whanga­mata¯ Run Walk Fes­ti­val this Satur­day.

More than 500 peo­ple had signed up for ei­ther a 5km, 10km or half marathon by the start of the week but many more late en­tries are ex­pected.

Whanga­mata¯ Lions Club pres­i­dent Ken Coulam says reg­is­tra­tions are be­ing ac­cepted right up un­til 8am Satur­day at the Whanga­mata¯ Area School, where the races start.

The Lions’ 50-strong mem­ber­ship has or­gan­ised the fes­ti­val for the past three years and say they are al­ways seek­ing sug­ges­tions on how to make the event ex­tra spe­cial.

They are alert­ing driv­ers to take ex­tra care on the roads, which will be busy with walk­ers and run­ners from 9am to 12.30pm.
