Kapiti Joggers & Walkers

What do we do?

  • Our friendly group meets every Sunday morning at 8.15 for a run or walk of about an hour and a quarter at venues which range from Otaki to Plimmerton.

  • After the Sunday exercise the group often retreats to a nearby café.

  • There are also club trips to events such as the Great Forest Run/Walk at Waitarere and the Wanganui Three Bridges.

  • Our annual subscription of $35 covers three paid morning teas and a Christmas breakfast. There are also regular social events such as ten pin bowling and a mid-year dinner.

  • A weekly email keeps members up to date with news and upcoming events.

  • Members also have access to the Walking New Zealand magazine as well as a library of sports books, other non-fiction volumes and a few novels.

For prospective members

If you are thinking of becoming a new member, you can try us out for 2-3 weeks to see if it’s your thing. Our walkers group is quick and covers about 9kms at a brisk 8 – 9 minutes per km pace for approximately 1¼ hours. The group allows for occasional regroups at strategic points, to allow slower people to catch up. The runners cover about 12km in the 1¼ hours at 6 – 7 minutes per km pace. As with the walkers, there are regroups along the way.

Each walk and run is led by a member who has a good knowledge of the area where we are meeting.
