Twenty bartenders smash out a marathon.
Updated: May 11, 2021
After a tough 2020, why not make it a bit tougher?
That’s why Healthy Hospo, with the help of Speights, decided to put together a team and tackle the Speights West Coaster running event, an 11.5km run to cap off a year that already felt like a marathon.
The newly minted Speights Run Club assembled 20 bartenders from across Auckland to sweat it out in yoga, strength training and endurance runs - all with the ultimate goal of participating in, and crushing, the event.
After eight weeks of intensive group training, they tackled the run alongside hundreds of other participants, and couldn’t have been more stoked.
The idyllic views and gorgeous weather kept the runner’s chins up, while the shining coastline of Bethells Beach provided a literal silver-lining to a year that kept everyone isolated and inactive.
Healthy Hospo is already forming the next Speights Run Club team for this year’s competition, which is due to take place on December 11th, 2021.
