Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme

The aim of the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme is to get people off the couch and completing a 10km walk/run in 10 weeks! This involves making a positive change to one's overall health and wellness, so the dividends keep on paying. 

If you or someone you know want to make a health and fitness lifestyle change but need a little helping hand, the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme is perfect.

Through a 10 week journey, from late May until the event in August, successful applicants will come to an intro evening where you'll be provided with a training programme, nutritional and lifestyle advice, and goal setting sheets.

Applicants will also need to commit to group training for one hour, one night a week for 10 weeks leading up to the Taupo Marathon. Finally you'll be registered for the 10km event which you can complete with other scholarship participants - and your goal will be achieved! 

There are no costs involved in being part of the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme.
