Dr Wright has dreamt up a series of annual fundraising walks for the people of Auckland. Once WOA is established within the Queen City, he plans to expand into the other urban centres of Aotearoa/New Zealand.
From 2020, the Point 2 Point 30 (#P2P30) and Point 2 Point 50 (#P2P50) will occur every September, to celebrate the day after we move our clocks forward. Both these events will begin in the picturesque Coyle Park, Point Chevalier. The #P2P30 finishes up overlooking the mouth of the Tamaki River at Point England. The longer #P2P50 continues, crossing the Tamaki at Lagoon Drive and then heading along Rotary Walk up through Farm Cove, Half Moon Bay, Bucklands Beach to it’s finish at Musik Point.
The Head 2 Head 130 (#H2H130) will be a relay event held for the first time in April 2021, on the weekend of Day-Light Savings, starting in Torpedo Bay at the base of North Head, looking out across the entrance to the Waitemata Harbour. The final destination for teams that enter this event will be South Head, 130km away at the southern entrance of the Kaipara Harbour.
In 2022, WOA will then introduce the Head 2 Head 200 (#H2H200), a route that starts all the way out at the lighthouse on Manukau Heads and finishes within eyesight of the start line, albeit on the other side of the entrance to the Manukau Harbour (Wing Head). Once established, these two events will operate in tandom, occurring biennially on the autumn April weekend when the clocks are turned back, giving entrants an extra hour to enjoy their endurance plogging experience.
