Wellington really turned it on for our team at the 2015 Armstrong Wellington Marathon this year. We had athletes from around NZ participating in both the half marathon and the 10km and with a beautiful, sunny day we couldn't have asked for more. All our athletes completed their designated distances and a great time was had by all. Well done to our Wellington locals who organised a fantastic, fun event.
The MINIONS from 'Despicable Me' are back in their own exciting new adventure for all ages. And we've got aSPECIAL PREVIEW SCREENING for Achilles supporters in Auckland on Saturday morning, 11am, 20th of June.
Please join us. Your $20 donation (per seat) will let you and your loved ones see a movie that promises to be a barrel of laughs five days before anyone else in NZ.
