From the captains

  • Round The Bays is coming up on 17 February, which is a huge opportunity for us to recruit some new rampant lions. Having a big strong club means we all have someone to run with, and that means a better chance of defending our Club of the Year title from Road Relays! We need as many people as possible at the event to help promote the club. If you're running, wear your Scottish shirt and chat to people at the start line. If you're injured, come hang out at our club tent at the Kilbirnie Park Festival and hand out flyers to the finishers and tell them how awesome we are. If you're able to help out at the tent (including helping with set up/pack down and transport), please email Michelle Knight (michelle.lou.knight@gmail.com) to let her know you're interested in helping.
  • Would you like to be a pacer for the Round the Bays? Each year the Wellington running community provides pacers for both the 10km and half marathon. The pacers always attract a large following of competitors on the day. The task is rewarding and very much appreciated, and a lot of fun. And of course entry is free, and a T-shirt provided. If you are interested, please email Todd (todd.stevens@pwc.com). Pace times are: 10k: 40, 50, 60min and Half: 1.25, 1.30, 1.40, 1.45, 1.50, 2.00, 2.10

Upcoming events

2018-19 Waterfront 5k Summer Series, Tuesdays

  • The Waterfront 5k Summer series runs every Tuesday evening, 5.45pm, from Mac's Brewbar. Come and join us for a post-work fun run on Wellington's amazing inner city waterfront. (Note: No events on 26 Dec 2018 or 2 Jan 2019.)

Capital Classic - 18 January

  • The Capital Classic, Newtown Park, on Friday 18 January is one of New Zealand's premier track and field meetings. It starts at 4.30pm and features a full track and field evening programme. The highlights are the women's and men's 3000m New Zealand Championships. Some of Scottish's top athletes will be competing but even if you are not competing, do come along to watch. Scottish runners like Anne Hare, Rees Buck, John Henwood, and Hamish Carson have previously won this national title multiple times.

Jumbo Holdsworth Mountain Trail Races - 26 January

  • The Jumbo-Holdsworth Trail Races starts at 8am from the Mt Holdsworth H.Q. carpark, Tararua Forest Park. You can either race the 24 km loop to Mt Jumbo then Mt Holdsworth or you can go in the other direction - Holdsworth, then Jumbo. Or you can do the shorter 12km Hooper Loop. These races form part of the Scottish Summer Series.

Round the Bays - 17 February

  • Round the Bays is the biggest running event in Wellington with thousands of competitors each year. There are three events to choose from 6.5 km from Frank Kitts Park to Kilbirnie Park, 10km or a half marathon. There is always a big turn out of Wellington Scottish singlets and it is an important start to the season and recruitment opportunity for us. Look out for our tent at the finish.
