Round Rarotonga Road Race celebrates its 40th Anniversary with its annual weeklong event from the 15 – 21 September 2016 held on the beautiful tropical island of Rarotonga. The event caters for everyone including families, social, recreational and competitive runners and is a fantastic opportunity to combine a holiday with a once in a lifetime sporting achievement.
This Race aims to raise funds to help develop our Junior Athletics in the Cook Islands to travel to New Zealand to compete and experience International competitions, whilst also providing participants with an opportunity to enjoy the white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons and lush tropical hills that make up the unique and beautiful environment of the Cook Islands.
The first event of the week starts with a 5km Fun Run 15 September followed by the Main Race set for the 17 September with the 31km run or walk around the island of Rarotonga. However if you are not up for that, there is a 10km option on the day. The Prize Giving Ceremony is a day after the Main Race that will be held on the 18 September, a perfect opportunity to celebrate and catch up with other participants over dinner. Hash House Harriers Birthday Run set for 19 September followed by the Round Rock (Island) Team Relay and the totally mad but fun Nutters Cross Island Run.
The 39th Round Rarotonga Road Race is definitely a fun and memorable event to combine with your holiday to the beautiful island paradise of the Cook Islands
