There are many reasons why we run in packs (groups), some are: 

 

Expanded Social Circle: It's a great opportunity to get to know people with similar interests and make new friends.  It is also an excellent way to explore new places within the Hutt Valley that you might not have seen before.

 

Motivation Boost: With pack running, you get your own personal cheering squad.  Members of running clubs and teams cheer each other on during races and support one another through long runs.

 

Improved Performance: Let's face it: Everyone thrives on a little healthy competition.  When you're running with others who are encouraging you to run faster and harder, it's easier to take it to the next level.  You can learn so much from speaking to people with years of experience to help you achieve your own goals.  

 

Pack Leaders set the route but are not responsible for ensuring your safety.  Let the Pack Leader know if you are turning back early, or plan on going further.
