What's it all about?

RUN WAIHI is a local initiative designed to get like-minded people active on a regular basis.

It's pretty simple — you turn up, you check in, you run (or walk) 5km. It can be as competitive or as social as you want, and when you've finished you can catch up with friends (new and old) over coffee, or if you're keen, you can keep on running.

We'll record your 5k times and publish them on our Facebook page so you can check your fitness progress over time.

How much does it cost?

It's free! We might ask for your help once in a while to look after the timing, but that's all. It's about regular exercise and having fun with friends.

What do I need to bring?

  • Running/walking shoes appropriate for the surface. It's a trail run that's mostly gravel but there's a small section of grass.
  • A jacket/raincoat just in case.
  • Your favourite 'fuel' and hydration.
  • A leash for your dog.
  • A fun attitude and a friend...

Want to join up?
