Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme

The aim of the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme is to get people off the couch and to make a significant change in their health, with the end goal being to complete the Taupo Marathon 10km run/walk. If you're someone, or know someone, who's always wanted to make a health and fitness lifestyle change in their lives but never made the step, the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme is for you.

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 one hour, one night a week for 10 weeks around Taupo. Finally you'll be registered in the 10km event on Saturday 6 August 2016 where you'll take part in the event with other participants, and your goals achieved! There are no costs involved in being part of the Taupo Marathon Scholarship Programme. Sound like a bit of you? Or does it make you think of someone that a scholarship could benefit?
