Lugton's Round the Bridges

Lugton's Round the Bridges run is set to hit the pavement again this year, taking place on Sunday 17th November, along the banks of the Waikato River.

One of the oldest contested running events in New Zealand, Round the Bridges will see over 5,000 runners, joggers, walkers and wheelchair athletes join the alumni of participants.

Starting and finishing at Garden Place in the centre of Hamilton City, the courses take in the Waikato River walks and the iconic Hamilton bridges, with event participants having three race categories to choose from - the 12km fun run and walk, 6km run or kids course.

Participants can endeavour to follow in the footsteps of past champions including a long list of Olympic Medallists such as Barry Magee, Peter Snell, Mike Ryan, Lorraine Moller and more who have all taken part and won the race in the past.
