Please support our fundraising for The Speed Freaks and NZ Flying Doctor Service, so they can continue to help the communities they serve.


Once upon a time, a group of enthusiastic "runners" from different walks of life, with different life stories; decided to form a team and enter the most exciting road relay of the land.

It started with one Hagley Parkrun, a gift from many volunteers who would give their time early Saturday morning so the community would have their awesome dose of 5K run. Naturally they would talk about how their run went and the excitement to look forward to the next. Evidently, the enthusiasm for more running grows and grows. The thought of joining Takahe 2 Akaroa Road Relay - Canterbury's best team running event came into the radar... and somehow they all just came together, the way strangers who become friends do. Unlike any other runs, this road relay matters though. The Canterbury Cruise Control team will be supporting two amazing charities - The Speed Freaks and NZ Flying Doctor Service. These life changing and saving charities are simply inspirational. Please visit their website to learn more of their amazing work throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. Running may have started as simply an outdoor-indoor activity, but for our Takahe 2 Akaroa team journey - running is a refuge, one that feels like a comforting hug at day’s end.

Please support us in raising as much funds as possible for these worthy causes - The Speed Freaks and NZ Flying Doctor Service, so they can continue to help the communities they serve.
