Welcome to the club
The cooler weather is here, and so is our 2022 Harrier season. We've planned a range of enjoyable and challenging runs on farms, trails, roads and more.
Do you and your family want to try something new that will benefit mind and body? Do you want to challenge yourself over a variety of distances and disciplines, or do you just need to get fit for your winter team sport? Then our summer athletics programme is for you. We offer a wide range of events on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (October - March) for children and adults.
If you've conquered a half-marathon and you need a new goal, why not try Julian's Berry Farm Toi's Challenge? Held every November, Toi's Challenge is one of Whakatane's iconic annual events. It follows the beautiful Ngā Tapuwae o Toi track, named after a Māori chief who ruled the area about 800 years ago.
At 18km, Toi's is a bit shorter than a half-marathon, but the rugged terrain makes it a good deal harder. The stunning coastal and bush scenery provides plenty of distraction if you need it.
The 2022 event will be on Sunday, November 20.
