Foster parkrun, Rolleston ( near Christchurch) – 27th October 2018

Greytown Woodside Trail parkrun – 3rd November 2018
Achilles at the Auckland Marathon – Sunday 28th October
Achilles is always excited about this event and even more so in 2018 as they have 22 wheelies competing for the very first time (there are even two cousins from ‘across the ditch’ competing) plus their own Alana Lythe is an Ambassador.
