The Tauranga Boys’ College were kind enough to host a Gold Coin Donation Run for Christchurch. Students and tutors from the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic joined the school’s cross county team and ran 8k along the picturesque Daisy Hardwick Boardwalk.
Although not a race, there was some hard work put in by the runners
Others took it a bit easier
The teacher’s from the school were a bit more energetic
This was a ‘C’ for Christchurch from the runner below. You have to use your imagination a bit 🙂
I’d like to say this was me just holding off two fast finishers to take the win but truth is I only ran enough (maybe 5k) to be able to take some photos. I didn’t intend running at all and so wasn’t exactly dressed for the occasion!
This guy was the real winner
He was F.A.S.T !
The people we saw on the run were very supportive. Some of the people on the streets gave us money and people even threw coins from their cars. We raised just over $122.
Thanks once again to Tauranga Boys’ College for hosting the event.
