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! :-)

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 20m sprints)

The location is near the steps, handrails, and benches, beside the Wahine Memorial at Frank Kitts Park, pinpointed here: https://goo.gl/maps/YKD8mk5H8q62

Distance: 5km (ish)
Speed: 30-35 minutes for 5km

The speed is flexible, if you want to come along but are worried about the speed, don't be. we're happy to go at whatever pace is required, if someone is feel particularly spicy on the day and wants to go faster they can go run shuttles

However, if we get more than 25 people we will shift to using vaccine passes.

Tuesday Core

Needs a location

Hi, I'm Stu, not a sports or medical professional, but I'm a keen runner with podium finishes in everything from 10km to 85km events.

Come and join in for a 35 minute core (abdominal) strength workout before the Tuesday Spectacular run!

Squats, planks, bridges, lunges, and core supersets...we do it all!

The location is the amphitheatre at Frank Kitts Park, pinpointed here: https://goo.gl/maps/EUtQS5qEfLP2
On wet days we'll be nearer the children's playground just to the north or inside the covered carpark just to the south.
