Tower Run loom­ing

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Reg­is­tra­tions will soon be open for the pop­u­lar an­nual J Swap Mata­mata Chron­i­cle Tower Run.

The event, held this year on March 4, is a fundraiser for the Mata­mata Ath­letic Club and Mata­mata Har­ri­ers.

The 2016 event will see a range of tro­phies up for grabs cov­er­ing a num­ber of cat­e­gories for both the 6.6km and 4km dis­tance.

Tower Run or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber Steve Wen­zlick said the Tower Run was a fun com­mu­nity event which was ‘‘all about fam­i­lies get­ting out there and ac­tive’’.

While there is not a team cat­e­gory, or­gan­is­ers cer­tainly don’t want to stop peo­ple run­ning or walk­ing to­gether as a group.

Putting to­gether an event like the Tower Run takes a lot of time and ef­fort.

‘‘Ev­ery year we get tremen­dous sup­port from a wide range of peo­ple both in the com­mu­nity and from busi­nesses. We couldn’t run this pop­u­lar com­mu­nity event with­out all of this help,’’ Steve said.

The start and fin­ish of the Tower Run takes place at the Karaka St en­trance to the Tom Grant Dr.

The event will fea­ture spot prizes and en­tries start from $5.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms will be avail­able from the Chron­i­cle of­fice at 2 Tainui St from Fe­bru­ary 5 un­til noon on race day.
