Kerikeri Rapid Relief Team NZ volunteers, supporting the Kerikeri Half Marathon Sport Northland!

Another year has passed and the 21st of November dawned a beautiful day for the annual Kerikeri Half Marathon.
RRT was pleased to help man the 7 water stations on the 21.5km between Okaihau and the finish line at the Kerikeri domain.
It's a pleasure to support these competitors, many of whom compete to raise funds for charity including local firefighter Simon Trye who broke a Guinness World Record for the fastest half-marathon in full firefighting kit and breathing apparatus raising more than $14,000 for child charity KidsCanNZ!

You did a great job, I loved watching how long it took your helpers to realise Simon couldn’t drink when they were handing him one each time. Was a great day

A large fire destroyed a shed and adjoining buildings in Kerikeri this afternoon.

Firefighters now have the blaze under control and are dampening down the remaining hot spots. Our Kerikeri Rapid Relief Team NZ volunteers were pleased to respond and help by issuing water bottles and refreshments to fire fighting crew and help with traffic response.
