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.
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.
