The Mackenzie Half Marathon is a WINTER event, set to show off our majestic mountains and expansive farming hills. The two bigger events include a river crossing, which you can imagine is just a tad cold during the winter months. As such, it is important to ensure you are well prepared for your race. Ensure you have your thermals and merino wear, including merino socks to keep those feet warm. 
As a fundraiser for the Fairlie Lions, we rely on our local businesses to keep the Mackenzie Half Marathon going each year. These businesses support the event financially as well as providing many amazing spot-prizes to be won on race day. As they support the event, we ask that you support them by popping online to their website or visiting them instore to get what you need to be RACE READY!

Keeping Active Feet Healthy

Head to Aubrey Podiatry - to GET IT STRAIGHT. Your feet are your foundation.

If the foundation of your home has a crack in it, the entire structural integrity of the building is compromised. This is likewise true with your body. If your feet are unsupported this can make your whole body unbalanced and increase your risk of injury. Aubrey Podiatry offers a range of men's and women's Orthotic friendly footwear too.
