Walk or run to sup­port sport

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By BY MERE­ANA AUSTIN Mata­mata Col­lege Gateway stu­dent

Run­ning shoes will be over­tak­ing ve­hi­cles in Mata­mata this Fri­day, March 25.

Mata­mata Col­lege Sports Club will be hold­ing the Mata­mata Mitre 10 Fun Run/ Walk to raise money for Mata­mata sports teams and Mata­mata Col­lege sport­ing projects and ac­tiv­i­ties.

Mata­mata Col­lege sports co-or­di­na­tor Donna Gaskell said she would like to see the com­mu­nity sup­port this event, as they did for the Tower Run, which had more than 250 par­tic­i­pants.

‘‘It’s a great op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the Mata­mata com­mu­nity. It’s for all lev­els and is not a competition. We just want in­volve­ment,’’ Ms Gaskell said.

Reg­is­tra­tion be­gins at 5.30pm and runs/ walks be­gin at 6pm.

A bar­be­cue din­ner will be avail­able on the evening, along with cold drinks and en­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by Mata­mata Col­lege stu­dents.

The en­try fee is $15 per per­son, $45 for a fam­ily con­ces­sion and $40 for a team of four stu­dents, for both run­ners or walk­ers com­pet­ing.

Par­tic­i­pants can choose a 5km or 10km dis­tance. Reg­is­tra­tion and fees need to be sub­mit­ted to Mata­mata Col­lege or Mata­mata Mitre 10.

A late en­try fee of $5 will ap­ply to those who have not en­tered by March 21.
