Sunday Pack Runs...
We run & walk every Sunday morning at the times below. It pays to arrive 15 minutes early to get a park and get changed. We have great showers so bring a towel for after the run too.
The current club programme is run every Sunday unless noted below.
- 7:00 am - Walkers and the 7's
- 8:00 am - Everyone else
Note: We run at 7:00 am from January (6:00am walkers from 19 Feb) until the week before the Rotorua Marathon in May, and at 8:00 am after the Rotorua Marathon until Christmas (7:00am for the walkers from Week 4 until AKLD Marathon).
See you on Sunday.
