The Hampton Downs 2 Hour Race Track Run

Hampton Downs and the John Walker Find Your Field of Dreams Foundation proudly join forces to present the 2 Hour Race Track Run.

The Charity 
The event will raise funds for the charity of legendary Olympian John Walker. The John Walker Find Your Field of Dreams Foundation is a not for profit charitable trust, aimed at encouraging the young people of Auckland’s area of greatest need to pursue a more active lifestyle through sport and physical recreation that would lead to a fitter, healthier and more caring community. The foundation recently delivered their 1 millionth free swimming lesson, provided free of charge, in lower decile areas of the region.

The Course 
The inaugural 2 Hour Race Track Run is guaranteed to be traffic-free, is relatively flat and the location is one we are pretty sure you will not have run on before – a race track! There are sweeping corners, long straights, a gradual incline, and the best part – a downhill corner on Turn 1!

The Run 
The event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels. The 2 Hour Race Track Run will start at 11.30 am and finish at 1.30 pm. The idea is to run as many laps of the 2.7km National Track at Hampton Downs as you can in two hours.
