Taupō Marathon hits this weekend
Following a busy school holiday period for the Taupō District, retailers and other businesses are preparing for another influx of visitors this weekend, with the Taupō Marathon set to take place this Sunday.
Council events manager Steve Giles is happy to see events back on the radar across the Taupō District.
“We have a great community here that love hosting people and we always get a great turn out for the Taupō marathon,” he said.
“All upcoming events will help stimulate our local economy too, which is great.”
If you’re competing this year, remember to bring your hydration pack or reusable bottle. This year organisers Total Sport have also excluded plastic cups from aid stations, in an effort to reduce the environmental impact of their events.
Make sure you head down and cheer on friends, family and everyone else out there giving it a crack!.
