Saturday, 18 Apr 2020, 13:45 to 17:00: CANCELLED: Wellington Mountain Running Champs (in lieu of club run), Wainuiomata ×
Updated 19 Mar 2020.

IMPORTANT: this event has been cancelled

Instead of a club run, we are encouraging all members - juniors, seniors and masters - to join in the Wellington Mountain Running Champs.

We won Queen Club of the Mountain title last year, and our kids won us the Prince and Princesses Club of the Mountain Title. Let's see if we can get the men's title back!

This is also a great chance to support Wainui Harriers - another small club with an awesome supportive social feel.
