Sunday, 16 Feb 2020: Wellington Round the Bays, Frank Kitts Park
Updated 28 Jan 2020.

Starting at Frank Kitts Park, participants will make their way around Wellington’s iconic bays towards Kilbirnie park.  This part of the course is interactive and fun, with lots of opportunities on the way to enter competitions, be sprayed by water guns, serenaded by bands and enjoy the view! For those competing in our 6.5 km events, your journey will come to an end at Kilbirnie Park where you can spend an hour or two at our family friendly finishers’ festival!

If 6.5 km is not enough, our 10 km runners and walkers will continue to our Miramar turning point, and then head back to Kilbirnie Park.

For those keen runners and walkers competing in the half marathon, your course will continue all the way to Scorching Bay where you will turn around and return to the finishers’ festival to celebrate.

Globelet Half Marathon – 7:45am
Bluebridge 10km – 8:30am
Fiji Airways 6.5km Fun Run/Walk – 9:15am
6.5km Buggy Walk – 9:15am

It is recommended that you are at the Frank Kitts Park start area no later than half an hour prior to your event start time. If you need to collect your race bib or drop any clothing at the bag check please allow yourself enough time to do so as there may be a queue. Les Mills will run a warm up at the start line before each event starts.

Scottish Night of Miles

Latest details for this event are on the Facebook event page here (you don't need to be a member of Facebook to access this).



The LIFESTYLE SPORTS Scottish Night of Miles is an annual event organised by Wellington Scottish Running Club. It is a unique event full of Christmas fun and features races over the rarely run distance of one mile.



Each year we collect donations ($5 suggested) from athletes and spectators then hand them on to a local Wellington charity. This year's charity is the Mary Potter Hospice.



We are also grateful to our event sponsor, Lifestyle Sports, who are a long-standing supporter of Scottish Athletics and one of the premier retailers of running kit within the region.



The programme consists of a mix of children's, senior elite and fun social events. There are several different mile races including elite men's and women's races and an all-comers mile that anyone can participate in (including Father Christmas).



This year we are introducing a couple of new events:




  • a Mile relay - teams of 4, each athlete running 400m (and a bit) to provide some fun at the end of the evening, prizes to any team that breaks the magical 4 minute mile!

  • fastest Santa award - pop on a beard, Santa hat or full Santa suit and run the 100m or 200m - prizes to the fastest Santa this side of Lapland...
