Come join in the buzz of this iconic Wellington event on Sunday 21 February 2016! 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 Cigna Achilles Half Marathon, Bluebridge 10km, 6.5km Fun Run/Walk and the 6.5km Buggy Walk 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 on Kilbirnie Park.

2015 saw a field of over 14,000 runners take up the challenge and run, walk or wheel their way to the finish. We have increased capacity in 2016 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!
