2012 will be the fifth year we have hosted the Megawalk and it will be bigger and better than ever, we hope to build on the number of participants from last year which was over 1250! All proceeds will again be going directly to CanTeen Hawkes Bay.
There are four events to cater to all levels of fitness and ability.
The Mega is a 28km run or walk. The event starts at Mitre 10 Mega, Hastings. Participants will follow a clearly defined route through Hastings to the Showgrounds. The course then heads towards Whakatu before joining the Rotary Pathway at Pakowhai Park, adjacent to the Chesterhope Bridge. It then follows the Pathway to Ahuriri. The finishline is at Mitre 10 Mega, Napier.
The HB Today Half Mega is a 15km run or walk that starts at Awatoto, opposite the southern end of the Fertiliser Works, at 9am. This event also follows the Rotary Pathway and finishes at Mitre 10 Mega, Napier.

Volunteer marshals needed. If you would like to support CanTeen but are not able to tackle the work you can still be of help to this wonderful charity. Marshals are required throughout the course to point people in the right direction and across roads safely. If you can spare and hour or two on Sunday please email Anita at CanTeen on HawkesBay@canteen.org.nz
