Manawatu-based running events company Yondering Ltd is headed up by husband and wife duo Gerry and Wouna le Roux. We have long been part of the running scene, having participated in a wide range of road and trail events, including marathons, ultras, circuit races and multi-day stage races. We have been involved, as organisers and volunteers, in the staging of numerous running and walking events, both locally and internationally.
Being runners, first and foremost, we understand what people want from events, and we will spare no effort to satisfy these requirements.
Gerry is a professional photographer with a background in management and business development, while Wouna is a graphic designer and artist with a web design background. This combination of skills enables us to cover most aspects of event management, from creating and maintaining event websites, handling advertising and promotion (both online and traditional), event management and sponsorships.
A major part of the success of Yondering derives from the wonderful team of volunteers contributing to our events. No event will be possible without the selfless contribution of volunteers, and we strive to make our events as fun and rewarding for our volunteers as it is for our participants.
