This year is the 31st annual Pelorus Trust RUN & WALK Event.  The Hutt Valley's premier running and walking event.  A flat and scenic course along both sides of the Hutt River.

With plenty to choose from - including a 5km Fun Run, 10km, Half Marathon, Full Marathon and the 'Cool Kid's Kilometre' - this event offers something for everyone.  Regardless of speed, age and ability.


Whether you're looking to step up from a 5k for the first time, or race hard...  Our most popular event could be the perfect challenge you.

Half Marathon

Our orginal 21.1km event is a perenial favourite.  Attracting elite runners to recreational walkers.  So, whether you're looking to challenge yourself on your first Half Marathon, or chase a new 'personal best', this flat scenic riverside course is a great choice.

Hell Pizza Full Marathon

An officially measured 42.2km course.  A loop of the Hutt River plus an out and back all the way to Upper Hutt, which then returns to Petone.  A Hell of a challenge!


Happyhire 5km Fun Run
