    Cigna Round the Bays 2016

    Principle event partner Cigna and Sport Wellington are looking to make the 2016 event the most vibrant yet!

Come join in the buzz of this iconic Wellington event on Sunday 22 February 2015. The Cigna Round the Bays takes advantage of the picturesque setting which winds its way around Wellington’s stunning inner city harbour.

There are several event options available for participants in this event with the 6.5km Fun Run/Walk , the Snapper 10km and the Half Marathon all fantastic options for the casual or serious participant! All of these events start at Frank Kitts Park and hug the harbour shoreline for various distances before returning to the finish line festival at Kilbirnie Park.

Once participants cross the finish line they are treated to a feast of live music, food stalls, the Southern Cross Family Zone, corporate marquee area, spot prizes and massage tents which all adds to the fantastic atmosphere.

2014 saw the Cigna Round the Bays sell out for a third consecutive year, with a record field of over 14,000 runners. We have increased capacity in 2015 but expect it to sell out once again so make sure you get in and book your spot on the start line before someone else grabs your place!
