Join packs of the fearless, the forceful, and the unclean at the Naki Run Amuck – held at Urenui Beach. Go as a team or alone. Get muddy to win or just for fun. It’s loads of fun, take a look

As organisers of this annual charity event, Rotary Club of New Plymouth North are excited to announce that Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust has been selected as 2017 Naki Run Amuck primary beneficiary. Other beneficiaries will be Rotary projects and local Urenui Community groups that help make the event a huge success.


Taranaki is a natural playground – peaks, rivers and ocean – all providing major hurdles for emergency services when an accident occurs. When there is a life-threatening emergency in our region, the Taranaki Community Rescue Helicopter is available 24/7/365 to provide a fast, life-saving air rescue and medical service. In the first half of 2016 the Taranaki Community Rescue Helicopter undertook 61 missions.

Your participation in Naki Run Amuck 2017 is supporting operational costs for the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter. Entries are limited and available to individuals and groups.
