Walk or run to support sport
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.
