Come along for a run or walk at the scenic West Wind Recreation Area by Makara this Saturday. Meet at 1:45 for a 2pm start at the car park at the end of Opau Rd.
There are plenty of loops to run with great views across Cook Strait, old gun emplacements to explore, and there's even mobs of goats to run through. Based on last year's trip you can even rest up on the beach while Michelle tries to take a short cut by climbing straight up a cliff!
We will have running and walking groups for all ages and abilities. This is a great place to take the kids exploring.
Head to the café at Makara Beach afterwards for refreshments.
