We are going completely quackers at Matakana Coast's quaziest fun run/walk which is on again at Fruitloop 2014. It’s a wonderful festive occasion with hundreds dressed in very ‘original’ costumes from the truly creative to the bizarre to the downright ridiculous! This year we have also added entry categories of Wheelchair/Mobility Scooters and another of Cycles. Also a seated spit roast dinner is available

The afternoon festivity starts at the Matakana Country Park in the Fruitloop marquee with judging of the fancy costumes from 2pm through 2.30pm. This is followed by a short safety briefing at 2.40pm and then the famous Fruitloop Warmup where many hundreds perform stretching and rhythmic exercising to music in the big marquee to get the circulations ready for the main event. Then to a massed countdown, the start ‘gun’ sends the more serious runners away at 3pm followed by the walkers and strollers.

The enchanting 7 kilometre fun walk run & ramble takes us through a spectacular mandarin orchard, vineyards, olive grove and farmlands usually closed to the public. En route live music entertainments are on several properties, wine tastings are also available and spectacular views of the heartland and hinterland of the beautiful Matakana Coast for those pausing to admire. The 3km wheelchair/mobility scooters course is entirely within the beautiful grounds of Aeneid mandarin orchard. The 11.5km Cycle route incorporates part of the walk/run course, part is on the walkway/cycleway and part around the garden villgae of Point Wells

After the exertions of the walk/run, the entertainments continue at the Matakana Country Park in the marquee where food and beverage stalls are also set up and the setaed Dinner. Results are announced and prizes awarded and festivities continue with feature band and others..

Prizes will be awarded for these 3 sections:
