Help us help the Taranaki Cancer Society! Unfortunately events cost money to organise and run. While we already have an amazing set of sponsors on board, every little bit helps, and means more of the entry fees will go into funding exercise programs for Cancer Survivors in our province.

Thanks in advance for your generous donation!


Earlier this year the Cape Egmont Half Marathon team made the difficult decision to hold the event virtually as a result of COVID-19 and the lockdown.

As a result, people from all over the world participated in the Virtual Half Marathon, choosing to walk or run 2.5km,5km,10km, or the Half Marathon distance in their local neighborhoods.

The group subsequently raised an amazing $12,000 for our Centre to go towards our Exercise groups!!!

We are so grateful to the volunteer committee: Nicola, Carol, Steven, Paige, Nick and their team for their hardwork and determination to see the event through in memory of their friend, Andy. Running an event of this magnitude is never easy, and to do so during a worldwide pandemic is extraordinary.

Thank you so much to the committee - you all did an incredible job and we are so grateful for your continuing support.



On behalf of the Cape Egmont Half Marathon Committee, I would like to thank all those who entered this year. Through your participation, we have been able to donate $10,000 to the TARANAKI CANCER SOCIETY!  This money will go towards funding exercise programmes for men and women in our community affected by cancer.

GYMSTICKS have proven to be very beneficial for improving muscle strength and balance, joint stability, coordination and postural awareness.  They also add variety to traditional types of exercises.  We've donated 15 gymsticks to the Taranaki Cancer Society for their clients to use.  Exercise plays a key role in mental and physical recovery for cancer survivors.  Contact the Taranaki Cancer Society for more information or to join a class.
