Are you in this photo?

 

I am the chairman of a committee organising the 40th reunion of the Joggers and Walkers Section of Pakuranga Athletic Club. Joggers and Walkers is the mid-week section of the club. We meet every Tuesday and Thursday mornings at the Athletic Clubrooms in Lloyd Elsmore Park. (Currently closed due to Covid).

The photo was taken in March 1984. For our 40th reunion we are trying to trace as many of our original members as possible.

Many of the people in this photo still live locally and we would like to find them in time for the reunion.

While the Athletic Club is 55 years old, our section was formed 40 years ago to provide morning jogging for housewives who had not get gone back into the workforce. Jogging was then in its heyday.

Today we mainly cater for walkers. We also now have a large male membership.

Several of the original members are still with us. Some, like me, have never left. Many returned to the workforce and now are returning to us years later. There are lots of stories and memories.

Our reunion is in September. Can your readers help us? Email Linda at tlmitch@xtra.co.nz
