With the uncertainty around the current Covid-19 levels and people potentially being unable to partake physically in the Tauranga City to Surf and Surf to Surf Event we have decided to create a virtual side to this event instead.
We welcome everyone to join us virtually at the largest fun run/walk in the Bay of Plenty. There is a Half Marathon (21km), 11km and 5km run or walk option. We welcome runners and walkers of all ability levels to join us! All competitors that compete their distance will receive a stunning finishers medal via the post.
Entry Fee: $25 (includes booking fee, medal and postage of medal (*to NZ addresses only))
When: Saturday 6th November or Sunday 7th November 2021
Tracking (Optional): Join the Strava Tauranga City to Surf Challenge club event to record your distance and see how you go against other competitors.
How do I track my progress and where do I submit this? You can track your progress however you like – we are encouraging people to use whatever apps/methods they are familiar with. This could be done using a Fitbit, a smart watch, an app, manually etc. We have recommended using the Strava app as this is widely used and easy to set up/accessible to almost everyone with a smart phone, but it is not compulsory. You do not need to submit your progress anywhere to prove you’ve completed the event and to receive your medal
Spot prizes: Much like our original virtual event in 2020, we will be setting some awesome weekly challenges to complete leading up to the ‘event day’ and have wicked spot prizes up for grabs. These challenges will be posted into the Tauranga City to Surf and Surf to Surf Facebook event page. We will also do spot prize giveaways on the event weekend as well.
Results: Please note that with the Virtual side to the City to Surf Event, we will have no results or podium placings.
We will email and contact all entrants and teams that have entered the Mitre10 Mega Tauranga City to Surf Event 2021, with their Covid19 cancellation by end of day Wednesday 13th October. If you have not received your email by Thursday 14th October 12pm, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
