Last year over 29,000 people and counting signed up to take part in the Round the Bays run. To help out with the sheer scale of the run Under Armour has now become a proud partner of the event for the next three years, encouraging Kiwis with their mission of making you better. For those who haven’t been formerly introduced, Round the Bays is a 8.4 km course that goes from the CBD all the way to St Heliers Bay. Plenty of people do it in groups and use it as a chance to hit exercise goals, raise money for charity, or as a chance to get the family together and promptly run away from them.
It’s been going hard for 48 years now with no signs of slowing down any time soon as it raises much needed funds for charities like Refugees as Survivors New Zealand, and Youthline Auckland. All of these phenomenal organisations enhance the lives of community members that need it the most from a physical, career, or mental perspective. However, you can choose to contribute to any charity, with over $160,000 being raised last year for over 30 different charities.
Entries are now open online for next year’s Ports of Auckland Round the Bays taking place on Sunday the 8th of March.
