Stride Or Ride Series Steps Out to Promote Healthy Lifestyles

Molenberg has joined forces with Sarah Ulmer’s SUB brand to create a new series of women’s sporting events. The Molenberg SUB Stride or Ride Series begins on 12th November with the first run, walk or ride event at Lake Karapiro in Cambridge.

Comprising of five events, each held in fantastic scenic locations around New Zealand, the series has been created to give women a great reason to get active and ultimately enjoy more active and healthy lifestyles.

Series spokesperson Sarah Ulmer is looking forward to the challenge of inspiring people to get involved.

“At SUB we are all about encouraging everyday kiwi chicks to get moving and lead an active lifestyle. It’s just fantastic for us to have a partner like Molenberg, who has the same passion as SUB in terms of promoting a healthy active lifestyle. And ripping into an event is a perfect way to launch into that kind of lifestyle!

The Molenberg SUB Stride or Ride Series is an extension of the SUB Ride Series we have held for the past 3 years. But this year we are going BIG! We are heading to five locations around New Zealand and are including walking and running choices to go with our cycling courses. So there is something for everyone, no matter what sort of fitness or ability you have. I’ll be at the events too, putting on the Lycra and also providing some motivation through regular emails to entrants and on our website.”

The Molenberg SUB Stride or Ride Series includes five course options: 5km walk or run, 10km walk or run, 15km cycle, 35km cycle and 65km cycle.

Open to women aged 16+, the events also include entertainment for the whole family, so the all-important supporters of those participating can join in the fun.

Registrations open today, visit to take the first step.

November 12th Lake Karapiro, Cambridge
