Start Me Up 2016 is based at Petone Rugby League Clubrooms, McEwan Park, Marine Parade, Petone Foreshore. We are gearing up for another awesome event, leading into summer, exercise, encouragement and fun!
This will be the eighth annual Start Me Up. Many women have been Starting Themselves Up every year … perhaps cycling faster, walking further, running quicker or for longer or trying the duathlon option … but enjoying the company of other women during a non-competitive, fun, affordable and motivating afternoon.
So pump up the bike tyres, dust off the running or walking shoes, do some pre-exercise so you can enjoy Start Me Up 2016 even more! Check out Start Me Up Facebook page if you'd like to do some pre-event exercise.
Start Me Up women’s event offers the following:
up to 7km WALK or RUN (Petone Foreshore); OR
15km CYCLE ride (Hutt River Trail); OR
25km CYCLE ride (Hutt River Trail); OR
5km RUN or WALK and 15km CYCLE DUATHLON

Ignite Sport Trust
Ignite Sport Trust hosts Start Me Up. Ignite Sport’s vision is to ‘positively influence New Zealand sport’s culture and provide opportunity for all people to realise their full potential in both sport and life’. Start Me Up is a celebration of ordinary women realising the long-term benefits for their health – physically and mentally – that come with a routine of regular exercise and looking after themselves.
Start Me Up is organised by Ignite Sport Trust with help from others interested in health, fitness, motivation, sport and recreation. Our aim is to encourage women to exercise regularly and see the gains in personal wellbeing.
Petone Baptist Church partners with Ignite Sport to serve our community, to provide facilities, recources and volunteers for Start Me Up.
