Stride Out for Summer 2018

Are you getting a GARMIN or FITBIT for Xmas, is a running watch on your wishlist?

Well, if Santa does grant your wish then you need to leave it at home on Sunday 14th January when you Run or Walk the NBS Nelson Striders Half Marathon or 10km.

Watches, timepieces of any description, ipods, phones or anything that can tell the time other than the early morning sun are not allowed in this iconic Nelson event, now in its 24th Edition.

All you'll have to pass the time away are your fellow running and walking mates plus the idyllic Maitai River as it meanders down the valley.

Slow down your life after a hectic Christmas and 2017 with an event that pits you against yourself and no one else. Whoever is the closest to their estimated time in the Half and 10km will win! Not the fastest just the closest to your estimated time.

The closest in the Half will take home the legendary Boar's Jaw with the next closest ten taking away some local pork.

Talking mates and adventures create your latest adventure together by entering together for MatesRates2018 and receive $5 per entry, 2 entries $10 off total, 3 entries $15 off total, use the MatesRates2018 code when entering online to qualify.

So time to enter and with the event over a month away there is plenty of time to work out your strategy.
