Park to Path event ends a busy Parks Week 2020
The Kapiti Coast District Council’s annual fun run/walk, Park to Path, will wrap up a busy week of events as Kāpiti celebrates Parks Week 2020.
Parks Week, which runs from 7 to 15 March, is an annual international celebration of the important role parks play – for people, communities, and the natural environment. Council has a diverse schedule of free events planned across all the district’s parks, including Rongoa Māori, Tai Chi, Acoustic in the Park, and, finally, the popular Park to Path event from 8.30am on Sunday 15 March.
Runners and walkers of all abilities can register online to join the free event, which offers a scenic walk or run from Otaraua Park in Otaihanga and along the Waikanae River. You can also register on the day.
Alison Law, Council’s Parks and Recreation Manager has seen the event grow since it began in 2018, with three routes to now choose from (1, 6 and 10 kilometre tracks).
“Everybody and every body is welcome to give it a go. It’s a flat, scenic route that showcases just how beautiful our public spaces are,” says Ms. Law.
Afterwards, participants can recharge with a coffee and something from the sausage sizzle (bring cash) before enjoying a complimentary massage onsite from the Functional Bodyworks team. To register and read more visit www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/parktopath.
