The start event
The official start of the 2019 PwC Foundation Charity Relay will begin from the new PwC Centre, situated right on Wellington’s waterfront at 7.30am on Friday 22 February 2019. Everyone will come together for team check-in and on the day final briefing. This is a great opportunity for organisations to come and cheer on their team/s as they start the relay. There will be some fun activities planned and some special guest appearances too!
This 100km relay will involve a largely ‘off-road’ run from Waterloo Quay, through to Te Marua. From here each team can choose to either have runners or mountain bikers complete the 18km Remutaka Incline trail to Cross Creek, before an on-road relay which will take runners to Martinborough.
To increase participation we have incorporated two shorter legs, where teams can elect to have walkers to complete these legs. Teams will have to comply with some mandatory safety requirements, but other than those requirements, there is flexibility as to how teams complete the relay. We suggest that teams comprise between 10 and 16 people. We have divided the 100km relay up into 15 legs.
The end event
The PwC Foundation Charity Relay 2019 will finish at Te Kairanga Wines, Martinborough. At the conclusion of the relay we invite teams to partake in the prize giving, share their experiences and achievements with team mates, other organisations and the charity partners. Before heading back to Wellington there will be refreshments, entertainment and plenty of opportunity to relax after the day’s event.
