New Events on the Calendar
Foster parkrun, Rolleston ( near Christchurch) – 27th October 2018
The daffodils may have gone by the end of the month, but Foster Park and their team will be in bloom to welcome new parkrunners to their lovely course!
Greytown Woodside Trail parkrun – 3rd November 2018
Achilles at the Auckland Marathon – Sunday 28th October
