Also AON's sponsorship of "Run for Good" means all Coromandel school children have free entry to the event. This creates a goal and provides inspiration to give an event a go. The schools have the details so check in with them ???? There are 5 distances to choose from and the event date of 15 October is the last weekend of the school holidays ????

Please note that this is a cupless event, in consideration of environmental effects.  In addition the medals this year are made from recycled rimu (no metal imports from China here) and you can also elect to donate the cost of your medal to the Purangi Conservation Trust. #forevergoodforyoursoul
