City2Saxton 2015

Date:     19/04/2015

Venue:  Nelson




Sport Tasman together with Pelorus Trust were pleased to see you motivated, active and out there enjoying exercise on Sunday, 19 April.  Well done to each of you for completing a 10km event. Some were training for upcoming half marathons, others were being active with friends and family while some of you were challenging yourself and the competitive ones were trying to better last year's time.

Thanks Volunteers
A huge round of applause to our volunteers and Sport Tasman staff who marshaled along the course. They pointed participants in the right direction, watched out for cars and hazards and cheered people on along the way. They also helped out with setting up and getting participants registered onsite.

With 350 participants we were pleased to see a jump in the number or people participating this year and getting active.
