Come and join in the buzz of Wellington’s biggest fun run/walk on Sunday 23 February 2014.
The event includes a 6.5km fun run, walk and wheelchair option and the ISC Lenco Half Marathon, as well as the addition of a new 10km run.
All three distance options take advantage of the beautiful inner harbour bays before converging on Kilbirnie Park for live entertainment, food and a great atmosphere for the whole family.
The 2013 event set a new Wellington fun run record with more than 13,700 participants and has seen consecutive sell outs since 2012.
AMI Round the Bays is organised by Sport Wellington and the Official Charity Partner is the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research.
The flat, fast course and professional timing system mean that the event is a road runner’s dream. The Half Marathon and 10km are both measured and sanctioned by Athletics Wellington so you can push to set your own ‘PB’ - or you can just take it easy and enjoy the atmosphere.
Participants can take advantage of fantastic offers and deals including the ‘work out for free offer’ from Les Mills gym. Get to Wellington and get in on the fun at the 2014 AMI Round the Bays!
