The Wellington Rainbow Sport and Culture Weekend is back, running on 25 to 27 January 2019. There’s a meet and greet drinks, dinner, swimming competition, golf, badminton, same sex dancing and a fun run. There’s more information on the Rainbow Weekend website: www.rainbowweekend.co.nz
With the Wellington Marathon on this weekend, there will be no Sunday run on 1 July. See you next weekend.
Just a reminder that this Sunday (10 June) is our first Frontrunners walk. Same time (9am), same starting place (outside Freyberg). See you then.
As this weekend is the Cigna Round the Bays, there will be no Sunday group run. Good luck everyone, and especially to Paul, Matt and Bruce who are doing the half-marathon!
As part of the Pride Festival Wellington Frontrunners and DSW Swim Club are running a fun triathlon on Saturday 3 March. Registration is FREE. There’s a sea swim (800m), a cycle (10km) and a run (5km) – you can sign up as an individual doing all or just some of the events, and we will form teams from the people who enter. (Volunteers are also needed: fill in the registration form too.)
As it is Wellington Anniversary weekend and lots of people are away, there will be no Sunday morning run this weekend. Wherever you are – you can still go running!
Due to the Wellington Marathon and with some people being away, there will be no group run on Sunday 18 June. See you all next weekend!
This week’s mid-week run will be on Wednesday 19 April (rather than Thursday). Same time (6pm), same starting point (Freyberg Aquatic Centre).
The weather forecast for the weekend has got a lot worse over the past 24 hours – there is now a firm forecast of southerlies and heavy rain for both Saturday 11 March and Sunday 12 March mornings.
For that reason we’ve decided that it’s best for us to cancel the Rainbow Fun Triathlon for this year – basically on the grounds that it wouldn’t be any fun!
But we’ll try again next Pride Festival.

This Thursday’s 6pm (2 March) run will start from the Laundry Lounge on upper Cuba St and head up the Polhil Reserve. https://www.facebook.com/LaundryOnCuba/
