It's an iconic Wellington event!

From its early roots as a charity fun run organised by Rotary, Sport Wellington took over the management and delivery of the event in 1999. 

Wellington Round the Bays has evolved over the years into an iconic, much loved regional Wellington event.

When Sport Wellington took over in 1999 the number of participants was 2,900. The event has since had substantial growth over the years with the addition of various participant options (the Half Marathon category was added in 2009, the Buggy Walk category in 2015 and the Active Families category in 2017). As a result, there are now normally 13,000+ participants taking part.

We aim to inspire runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to participate, challenge themselves and enjoy the experience! We want our participants to have a memorable and enjoyable experience from the time they arrive at our event, until the time they are home again.

Check out the video from the 2019 event - what a perfect Wellington day!
