Worldwide Companion Run NUMBER 2!

  • Nov 28, 2012 · 5:00 AM
  • the naked man (sculpture, not a real man!)

Simple concept.......

A Worldwide Companion 5k run.

Choose a scenic local 5k route, grab some friends or do it alone, and run 5k at exactly 4pm Greenwich Mean Time on the 27th of November 2012 (28th here in NZ).

Share this link with all of your local and far-flung international friends.
Last year there were more than 30 participants from no less than 8 different countries.
Let’s see if we can get 100+ people from 20+ different countries and at least 30+ different cities/towns......

The more the merrier, and the richer the tapestry of running experiences!

For us here in NZ, 4PM GMT means a 5am start!

OK it's EARLY but bang on for a SUNRISE!

The route can be varied depending on people's likes: either flat around the bays or up Mt Vic or...even Brooklyn hill. We can make a decision on the day.

So, WHO's in? See the Facebook site for the run!

    Fantastic effort everyone. You are all certifiable - I think that's why I fit right in :-)

    I'm suffering from a horrible terrorist virus so I will probably not show up tomorrow morning. Have fun!

    *YAY* - we now have a post run/walk/ride breakfast venue :

    "Joe's Garage" in Tory St have agreed to open at 6am to refuel us.

    Check out their website to read about what's on their delicious menu:

    See you all tomorrow morning - bright and early and ready to be stunned by the Wellington sunrise :-)

    You are all awesome. Keen to make the most of every day -
    What a way to start that day: fitness, beautiful sunrise, company of friends and a yummy breakfast before most people have gotten out of bed!

    Rough plan will see us run along the waterfront, up Mt Vic to watch the sunrise (about 5.45AM) and get some pics/video, then back down to somewhere for breakfast (any suggestions?). Should be back down by around[masked]AM.


    (or alternatively, as Jana suggests, a round the bays jog with the Wellington sign as the backdrop?)
