Wednesday evening 5km fun run/walk
Waitakere Triathlon & Multisport Club
Waitakere Triathlon & Multisport Club was founded in 1992 buy a few multiport enthusiasts who saw a need for a multisport club in West Auckland. The club grew quickly and as with many sports clubs, has had its fair share of ups and downs since then.
The club has always had a community focus, and since 2005 has been running a public 5km fun run/walk every Tuesday evening, rain or shine - except for short break over the Christmas/New Year period. This regular event has a loyal following and has always been free, and that is not going to change. The run/walk meets at the Waitakere City Rugby and Athletic Club rooms (under the Trust Arena, overlooking the athletic track) for a 6:15pm start.
WTMC has also been involved with a number of annual events over the years, both multisport events and events that involve only one of the three disciplines. But we have never had one that we could claim as ours.
Until now. Run Out West is brought to you by the Waitakere Triathlon & Multisport Club, the original (and of course, the longest running) West Auckland Traithlon club. Our first Run Out West event was in 2016, and was a great success. Because of the success and due to popular demand, this is now an annual event. In addition to the original 10km distance, we now include a 5km distance, and 2km race for kids (3 to 12 years old). The kids course will be entirely on the stadium grounds, and will not go out on to public footpaths or roads.
A Community run/walk event for anyone.
Billed as a "Fun Run", the event is primarily for fun, but entrants will wear electronic transponders so that their time for the event is accurately captured, and will be posted to the website shortly after the event wraps up for the day.
Every finisher, run or walk, receives a finisher's medal, and there will be trophies for first place in all categories, run and walk.
