You don't build a Festival and Event industry on your own, it takes a collective pride, passion and commitment from everyone to achieve. The following is a snapshot of our appreciation and a way of saying thank you to the entire Lake Taupo District, your hard work and effort is our greatest strength.
63.3 SERIES (sponsored by Events Capital)
Awarded to any entrant who completes Taupo’s three half marathons in the same season. If the Erin Baker or the Cameron Brown is not quite you then give the 63.3 a go, three half marathons in three months, you can run or walk it's up to you either way it's a great way to keep fit and challenge yourself over the winter months. Those that complete all three are awarded a free tee shirt branded for bragging rights.
Saucony Half Marathon
Mizuno Half Marathon
IRONMAN VOLUNTEER PROGRAM (sponsored by Events Capital)
Volunteers are the life blood of any Festival or Event, this could not be more true for the over 1000 that make Ironman New Zealand the success it is. Each year we ask those volunteers interested to fill out an entry and at the Volunteer party we draw two names, one female and one male. These lucky two receive a free entry and coaching package for next year's race along with goods and services provided by contributing local businesses such as Smiths Sports Shoes. What better way to say thanks to our volunteers and if you can guarantee one thing it's the unprecedented support they receive on race day from the rest of the volunteer family.
