WE'RE THE ONES IN THE HIGH-VIS VESTS
Sport Northland is a charitable trust and a registered charity. That means should our events manage to turn a profit, it is then reinvested back into local community health & wellbeing programmes. The Sport Northland Events programme is a community-led strategic initiative by Sport Northland to deliver fun, high quality run/walk events to the local Northland community. Our drive is to encourage Northlanders to come together and get active.
Whether you are a high-level runner or you just want to take on your first fun-run... our Northland Run Event Calendar caters for both the competitive and the social participant!
The Sport Northland Run/Walk Series was the recipient of the NZRA (New Zealand Recreation Association) Outstanding Event Award in 2010 and in 2008.
Lead by Sport Northland's Events Team Manager Jesse Gavin, our key team is held together by Event Coordinators Tara Wilson and Ashley Dobbs.
THE REAL HEROES OF THIS STORY
Simply put, we could never put on such high quality running events throughout Northland without our gang of dedicated and skilled volunteers. We owe everything to both our internal Sport Northland staff - who work in other departments day to day, right through to our community volunteer groups and individuals.
We cannot talk highly enough about the fantastic Northlanders who donate their time and expertise to help the cause!
Sport Northland would especially like to acknowledge the fantastic resource support of our local community groups.
Rotary Northland, Northland Kadets, community sports teams, local non profits, friends family and whoever else we can wrangle, you guys are the backbone of our organisation.
If you would like to get involved as a run event volunteer, our contact details can be found here.
Our main goal when planning any event, is to ensure that our participants have the best EXPERIENCE. If we make sure you have a great time for your money it is the easiest way to keep you coming back!
For this reason, we partner with fantastic local partners who provide added value to this experience. Great entertainment, pre-race warm up dancing, healthy kai that's actually yum and anything else that you guys would think is cool to have at our events.
