The Whale Run story:
Now in the sixth year, the Kaikoura Whale Run began life in the school grounds of Kaikoura Suburban School as the Kaikoura Suburban Half Marathon. The idea was to create a fun event fund raiser that could encourage folk to have a get fit project over winter to feel great for the summer. It has proven to be very popular and thanks to the support and sponsorship of Kaikoura Four Square we now bring you the new, bigger and even better Kaikoura Whale Run.
The team loved your event last year and I would love to get up and participate in something this year.
I just want to congratulate and thank you.
Congratulations for organising such a successful running event. All of the students I have talked to really enjoyed it as did our Principal. Our students felt a real sense of accomplishment at finishing the race.
Thanks again for a wonderful event. Am happy to promote to all my running friends.
A big thank you for the prize. It was unexpected and very generous.
