Club Events that we have organised as a club and others we think you might be interested in attending.
August 2020 Sunday 9th, 10.30am – Club Walk at Onehunga Reserve, Auckland. This is a great off leash park with a lagoon for the dogs to swim in. The loop walk is lovely going over a pedestrian bridge over the motorway to the harbour side of the manukau, then a new board walk and then back over the motorway and down to the park again. If the weather is okay we will have shared picnic after the walk so bring along some food and drinks (either for yourself or to share) if you would like to join in.
September 2020 Saturday 5th, 10am – Club Walk at Panmure Basin, Peterson Road, Mount Wellington, Auckland. Meet in the car park at the end of Peterson Road. Take an easy walk around the basin, with swimming spots at the beginning and middle of the walk so the dogs can have a swim
October 2020 Sunday 18th, – Club Attendance at the Omokoroa Coastal Challenge. A group of locals who are passionate about helping their community get access to great facilities and resources created this annual event to help raise funds. There is a range of options to walk or run from 5km to 15km, as well as a half marathon and a kids dash. This year they will be donating the money to the Omokoroa Domain Playground upgrade and to Awhina House who support women affected by homelessness in the Bay of Plenty. The Leonberger club will have a supporters stand at this event and we would love it if you could either participate or if you would like to help out by being at the supporters stand. If you are interested in either of these options can you please let Mel know by commenting on our Facebook event post or by emailing Melanie.Manders@fonterra.com If you would like to participate you will need to register for this event https:/runrunrun.co.nz/registration
