Parkrun Porirua

Porirua Parkrun will be operating as long as Wellington remains at Covid Level One. (As participation exceeds 100 people so is not possible under Covid level 2.)

What is Porirua park run? It is a 5km run or walk - It’s not about coming first or winning. You can go at your own pace and just enjoy being with other people. It is inclusive and the perfect way to start your weekend in the outdoors chatting to people.

The start occurs next to the Bothamley Park carpark. This is off Champion street and the driveway entrance is opposite the intersection with Windley Street. Head to end of carpark where the asphalt ends and there is a gate. For location see https://goo.gl/maps/wEohfp9bRu82

You are following the original 1870's (circa) coach road established for the early farms in the area. Today this old historic track is located within a park away from cars and now used by walkers, runners and cyclists.

The track is generally 3 metres wide with a gentle gradient and a compacted gravel surface that follows the Kenepuru Stream through a picturesque wooded wild valley. (There is a pinch point for a short section after the 2km marker where participants need to go single file each direction for approx 30 metres)

The valley runs east-west with mature trees which means this has to be one of the most sheltered places out of the wind to exercise in Wellington.

What does it cost to join in?
Nothing - it's free! but please register before your first run or walk, so you can get your timing results. You only need to register with parkrun once to participate at any of the parkrun events around the world. Don't forget to bring a printed copy of your barcode. If you forget it, you won't get a time.

How fast do I have to be? Walking is fine as long as you can finish the 5km within an hour. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Note there is no toilets in the park, so go before you go.

We're friendly! Every week we grab a post park run/walk coffee in the Porirua McCafe at McDonald's on Lyttelton Avenue to mix exercise with socialising.
