Runners of all ages are being encouraged to participate in an exciting new community fun run happening as part of the Red Bull Defiance Weekend in Wanaka.
The New World Wanaka Lake Fun Run is being held on Sunday 20thJanuary from Edgewater Resort and is open to both adults and children.
“ This is a something new for Red Bull Defiance and an opportunity for local runners to participate with the weekend event,” says Red Bull Defiance Race Director Bex Law.
“ The run is 5km in distance and suited to all ages and abilities with a shorter 2.5km version for kids. Both races start at Edgewater Resort from the Red Bull Defiance race hub and head out along the Millennium Trail before looping around and back to the Edgewater Resort finish-line ,” she says.
The New World Wanaka Lake Fun Run starts at 11.00am and registration will be open at Edgewater Resort from 10am onwards.
“ We hope to see lots of locals and families come along and joining in with the community run. We are asking for a $5 donation that will go to a local Wanaka Charity. There will be some great spot prizes from New World and Racers Edge and a fun vibe during the afternoon as competitors in the Red Bull Defiance start to come through the finish line.”
