Sports / Running

Running is one of the confirmed sports that will be held at the 2nd AsiaPacific Outgames.

Venue

The running events are to be held at one of Wellington's most scenic locations.


Starting from Freyberg Beach Oriental Parade (point A on the map), the course will take runners along Evans Bay Parade. Depending on the event entered, runners will either turn around part way along Evans Bay Parade (5km run, point B on the map), or further along near Kilbirnie Park (10km run, point C on the map), to finish back at Freyberg Beach.

Competition

There will be a 5km and a 10km run, open to experienced and novice runners alike. Both events are open to men and women. Both the 5km and 10km will be run on the same day so participants can only enter one race.

Host

Wellington Frontrunners will host the running competition.
