What we're about

This group is for those who'd like to meet other runners and enjoy discovering new/rediscovering old routes around the greater Welly. The idea is to meet semi-regularly or whenever someone comes up with an interesting route and RUN!

Road/offroad/rave/rogue runners ALL welcome! :-)

Pickled WoRMs run Polhill for woap burgers at the Arborist

Brooklyn Windturbine Route

As its Burger Wellington for 2 weeks we are switching the run to nearer to the City to taste what other venues have to offer. Come Join us. This week we'll be running up Polhill, then going for a woap burger at the Arborist. Table booked for 15 people @8pm (can always add a few more) This run is suitable for people who have run on the trail before and a bit of running fitness is required as we are going up hills, sometimes multiple hills ! But don't worry if you think you'll be slow, no one is left behind and we can always split into two groups. Under Level One can you please ensure you click ATTENDING to ensure we're abiding by Ministry of Health contact tracing guidelines.

Thursday trails in the Hutt


Come explore Hutt's trails by night. Each week we'll try one of many local trails - those more and those less travelled. The goal is to spend roughly an hour getting lost and finding our way back. Depending on the route, expect some hills (some weeks more than others) and a very relaxed pace.

Friday strength circuit

Needs a location

Celebrate the final day of the work week - and introduce some cross-training into your running routine - by doing a strength circuit!! The circuit is as follows: 1 minute on, 30 seconds break, for each. Start wherever, but then follow the circuit around. Do each exercise three times. Total time = 36 minutes. 1. Burpees. 2. Incline pull-ups. 3. Bicycle crunches. 4. Push-ups. 5. Squats (one-legged optional). 6. Box dips. 7. Planks. 8. Skipping. (If no skipping rope do 50m sprints) If there are sufficient numbers, and we have sufficient time, I have an extra special workout for us to do in pairs! Note the location is near the steps, handrails, and benches, beside the Wahine Memorial at Frank Kitts Park, pinpointed here: https://goo.gl/maps/YKD8mk5H8q62
