Please share the pathways with others. Please keep left and run no more than 2 abreast. Watch out for uneven and possibly slippery surfaces. Please be responsible for your own safety.
This is a 5km out and back course.
Start at the flags and run up to pathway between the cones, turn left.
Run down pathway towards the netball courts - at the end of this pathway
turn left. Follow the pathway towards the hospital and continue around the park.
Run up through the middle of the parks towards Riccarton Road intersection.
Turn left and continue around the perimeter of South Hagley Park.
Run down Deans Ave to Moorhouse Ave, follow the path anticlockwise around the outside of the park.
At Hagley Ave (netball centre), turn left and run past the netball courts
towards the hospital. At the hospital turn left and your 5km marker will be up the pathway. TURNAROUND HERE. Reverse the course.
*Important* On your return leg, make sure you don’t take the pathway up through the middle of the path towards the finish line until you are heading to the finish line!! (ie: On your return leg, you run past this pathway once - then the second time you run up the path to the finish).
Inspiration and education
We all have different reasons to run...in this article we see what inspires many of us - can you identify with any of these?
- Again...keep warm before and after your run team! We want you to stay healthy over winter...layer up!
