Round the Backyard 2021 - Virtually a fun run

The Team from Round the Bays

We are excited to announce that Ports of Auckland Round the Bays 2021 is going virtual!

We are bringing you the first-ever Ports of Auckland Round the Backyard! It’s a way for us all to band together for NZ's largest fun-run while keeping safe in our own backyards.

Participants will have from 6am Friday 12 March to 9pm Sunday 14 March (NZDT) to complete their own 8.4km course in one session – all via a handy app!

There will be live leaderboards, an interactive course map, social sharing, and participant places and paces in real-time – so you can have a healthy rivalry between friends! And you can even claim a finisher’s medal.

If you have a participant registration to our 2021 event, you have been emailed all of the info on how to go virtual with us, or opt-out for a 50% refund of your entry.

If you didn’t sign-up for our physical event, you can now sign-up for the virtual one! $10 from every new entry will go towards our official 2021 charity partner Auckland City Mission.

The Round the Bays team are stoked to be able to bring you this virtual event, as it means anyone from around the country can now be involved!

So we hope you grab your whānau, lace up those shoes and get amongst it — be it in your own backyard, neighbourhood, or a nearby park! Just as long as you go the distance while keeping your social distance 💙 #roundthebackyard

Please head to our website for all the info on the virtual event: www.roundthebays.co.nz...

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Hamilton Press.
