About Us

Welcome to Run Walk Hawkes Bay

Run Walk Hawkes Bay is a long-standing running and walking club that aims to motivate and assist people to run or walk within their capabilities with the emphasis being on recreational activities.

Although the walking and running we do will always be the main priority, Run Walk Hawke’s Bay considers the aspect of enjoying this activity in a social environment with others as an important second.

The Club was founded in 1979, with the main objective to help people achieve to run a (half) marathon. This has for a few years now moved to the gentler objective to help members reach goals within their capabilities, which may or may not include a (half) marathon.

We cater for both walkers and runners and both groups split up into subgroups on our weekly runs and walks, depending on your capability and ambitions. People of all ages and fitness level are welcome.

The Club has branches based in both Napier and Hastings.
