Note from Cambridge parkrun about to celebrate their 1st anniversary!
With one year (almost) under our belt, let’s indulge ourselves in some stats:
So make sure you come along on 3 March to celebrate the completion of one year, and the start of many more to come. If just half of the people registered to Cambridge NZ parkrun turned up, we would smash our current attendance record of 95.
Thank you to all the generous volunteers who have made our event happen every week for nearly a year!

Kirikiriroa Marathon Hamilton – Saturday 10th March
A number of Hamilton Lake parkrunners and Run Directors are involved in the administration of the Kirikiriroa Marathon, holding its third annual event on Saturday 10 March.
This is a not-for-profit, marathon, focussing on first timers and is very inexpensive ($32 solo, $80 for a team of three 12.6km, 18.1km and 11.5km). Management is totally volunteer based, therefore reliant on the running community for help.
A lot of volunteers are needed as marshals for a few hours on the day. They are critical members of the team, ensuring that everything goes smoothly and runners/walkers stay on the correct course. Expressions of interest are now open. Can you help?
