What you'll do

We will meet at the end of Lyall Bay beach outside the famous Mauranui Cafe. From there we'll start our adventure, running/walking (mix of both if you'd prefer) along Wellington's amazing coastline and bush tracks. Lyall Bay beach is located on the ruggered south coastline, beside Wellington airport. There are with a number of hills close by to get some quick elevation and great views from. From Lyall Bay we'll head around the coast for a couple of kilometres until we reach one of the many tracks heading up into the hills around the coast. There will be a couple of options of steepness depending on your fitness and preference. From the top there are views that span the Wellington Harbour, Cook Strait, South Island and surround Wellington city suburbs. I will carry snacks, water and basic first aid so you shouldn't need to bring much, just clothes to suit the weather which I'll happily advise if need be.

Katherine

I've been running the Wellington hills for over 20 years, experiencing the amazing bush and scenery that we have to offer. With a passion for adventure, I have an extensive running, biking and kayaking history. Whether it's a half hour zip up Mount Victoria or a 6-hour mission around the hills, I'm up for any adventure I can spare the time for.

What's included

Food
I'll provide energy food to snack on. Please let me know if you have any dietary requirements/intolerances.

Where you'll be

Your adventure will start in Lyall Bay which has the airport next to it as well as a popular surf, swimming and walking beach. You'll then traverse around the coastline to tracks that take you up into the surrounding hills of Lyall Bay. The elevation provides spectacular views of the Wellington region, Cook Strait and South Island (most days).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 18 and up can attend. You should have done some running prior - no need to be super fit though.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

If you have any questions or concerns about the run don't hesitate to contact me. I am happy to take people one on one or in groups of up to 4.
