50K a Day for the Month of May

Wednesday 1st-Friday 31st May 2019

For this year’s Chopper Challenge, we are encouraging businesses, friends, and individuals to complete 50 kilometres a day throughout the month of May for the Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter. Entrants can choose to either run, walk or cycle and can complete the challenge in teams or as individuals. By the completion of this challenge, each corporate team, social team or individual entrant should have completed 1550 kilometres. Interestingly, New Zealand is 1600 kilometres long!

Not only will you benefit your community but your overall wellbeing will thank you too!

It’s as easy as walking around the Nelson Airport perimeter six days a week – you get one rest day! Or take to some of the amazing tracks around the region and get to see where we fly into and save lives.
