Sunset Coast Walk returns this month

Rotary’s annual Sunset Coast Walk is approaching, and Rotary are encouraging people to join some friends, take a picnic lunch and attend the event.

Each year the fundraiser is put on with a range of walks from pram-capable to challenging.

The walks show off the scenery of the coast and greenery of farmland on the peninsula.
This year, four walking options are available, including five, seven, eight and 11 kilometre walks.
The purpose is not to take a competitive walk, but simply to enjoy the beautiful scenery the coast has to offer.

“There’s lots of shade under the trees, so people can bring a picnic lunch and enjoy each other’s company,” Nancy Rae of Waiuku Rotary said.
There will be drink stations, as well as toilets along the routes and a celebratory sausage from the bbq and a drink will be given out at the end of the walk, along with a certificate of completion.

“The scouts will once again be manning the bbq and a coffee van will also be available with iced drinks as well this year,” Nancy said.
Funds raised from the event will go towards local Rotary projects.

The Sunset Coast Walk takes place on Sunday 25 February 2018. Registration is from 7:30am at 207 Kohekohe Kariotahi Road, Waiuku.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
