“Hi – we are the Niwa family. Scott and Leigh, and our four kids Ella (12), Benji (8), Luca (8) and Bailey (6). We have been on Waiheke for the past 12 years, so almost locals!
Ella is doing the 12km for the first time this year, and Scott is excited about doing the inaugural Wharf2Wharf marathon. The rest of us will do the fun 5km together and aim to finish with smiles on our faces.
Our whole family is into sport - it’s just what we do. We are involved in league, netball, touch rugby, waka ama, softball and athletics. Scott is also in the Harriers Club. Four years ago, we started up the Waiheke Junior Running Club for kids.
We have done the Wharf2Wharf for the last eight years: running is a great way to get outside, stay active and get fit for all the other sports we are involved in. The Wharf2Wharf quite literally goes past our front gate so it’s a no-brainer.
We’ve done the Queenstown Marathon and half marathon, the Auckland Marathon, the Waiheke Trail marathon, the Waitomo Trail run (36km, 12km & 6km), the Tarawera Ultra relay and the Dual on Rangitoto is coming up on 23 March.
Training has been a bit intense with this heat but it’s going to be a great family weekend, including a number of relatives who are very good runners joining us from town. Can't wait!” ...
“My name is Andy Harper, and I am an enthusiastic member of the Auckland YMCA Marathon Club. I have proudly worn the club colours in all my road marathons. I have always done the 25km from Orapiu which was just prior to the New Plymouth marathon and then the Rotorua marathon. Lots of recovery from those Waiheke hills was needed in between, so I’ll be tackling them with caution this year. I am excited that the Wharf2Wharf has added the marathon event this year. Setting dates in the New Zealand marathon calendar is like tweaking a house of cards - it has to be done very carefully! I have completed 93 marathons which count towards the NZ 100 Marathon Club. I have also done some off-road marathons, including one on Waiheke a few years ago. I’ve run in Honolulu, London, New York, Boston, Vancouver, the Gold Coast (twice), Melbourne and Sydney. I am heading to the Chicago marathon this year, and plan to be back for the Auckland marathon a week later to celebrate my 100th!” ...
