Waiuku Lions Sand to Mud Run @ Waiuku Lions Den

Since 1977 Waiuku Lions have organised the 8km fun run that starts on the sands of Karioitahi Beach and ends in town.  Originally the finish line was near the tidal “mud” of the Manukau Harbour, however it now finishes in Massey Park adjacent to the Lions Station club rooms where there are plenty of activities for families.

The 2019 Sand to Mud will be called “Run for Reid” and is dedicated to fundraising for a local youngster’s medical expenses.
