Round the Bays (8.4km run twice,16.8km total) Auckland, New Zealand

8.4km long around the senic Auckland harbour waterfront. At times it can have blustery winds, but this mostly flat course is more for entry level athletes wanting to take par tin a short course.

I compete this each year in a different suit consisting of:

Gorilla suit, knight suit, wetsuit, Batman suit, and The Stig.

I enjoy this event as (simialr to the Kerikeri Half Marathon) I start at the finish line running from finish to start, then start to finish, total 16.8 km in costume. The first two words on the race number is ‘Fun Run’ and I believe my costumes encourage others to do more as well as help them find laughter and enjoyment in running events.
