Final 10km Run
2 more sleeps
Time to achieve your goal
5 weeks ago we started this programme together, many of you were extending on from the previous 8 week programme - and we also had some new faces join the team!
Our goal was to keep you moving and use the group to improve your running as well as provide an environment that is supportive and fun - we all need to look after ourselves at the moment and we want to help you look after you.
Whatever your reason is for running, we hope that we have helped nurture you and develop you - and we want to continue to keep you running and facilitating your growth.
We hope you are proud of what you have achieved yourselves, but we have to say, our team is incredibly proud of you all.
Final Run Details
Please run on the footpath at all times and keep left. Please cross over roads where we indicate with cones.
Follow the BLUE markers on this course.
It is an out and back run - you run to the 2.5km marker, turn around and come back the same way. You do 2 x laps of this course. See map below.
There will be no coaches, it will be about you doing it by yourself.
Note: You may see some RaceTeam Epic runners out there on your return leg - they have their Final Run too and are doing a different course to you.
Please follow your BLUE markers.
*Note: If you feel the run is going to take you longer than 1 hour 15mins we are going to start you off at 7am. Please only do this if you are going to take more than 1hour 15mins.

Post Run Massage
We have arranged for students from the New Zealand College of Massage to be at the finish line on Saturday to give you a post-run massage. The newly skilled students from NZCM have completed their sports massage training and are completing required hours in the community.
Massages will be provided in 10 minute blocks from 8.45am onwards and will be at a cost of a gold coin donation per massage so bring some coins if you want to treat your tired legs after your run!
