2020 Virtual Marathon


Virtual run.

Due to the impact of Covid-19, we are experiencing a significant loss of income. We need YOUR help to keep Lake Taupo Hospice running and continue to deliver palliative care to all our vulnerable patients. Donations of any size will make a huge difference to our patient’s quality of life.

So, we are challenging you to gather your bubble or sign up solo, and run/walk 5K, 10K or half or a full marathon in aid of Lake Taupo Hospice!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to complete the full distance all at once, you have 8 weeks to complete your course. You can either run or walk, whenever, wherever, all that we ask is you adhere to the government guidance as per the alert level restrictions.

Once you run is complete let us know! Simply email crm@laketaupohospice.co.nz and we’ll put you into the draw to win a very special prize! Want to enter the leader board? Screen shot your Km’s (strava, fitbit, Map my Run etc. is sufficient) and we’ll add you!

The registration fee is $10 with no minimum sponsorship, just raise what you can or make a personal donation on our Give-A-Little page at givealittle.co.nz/cause/lake-taupo-hospice-covid19

Remember Taupo, we are in this together.
