Gully Gutbuster

Gutbuster runner - 4

A fun day out for the whole family with a variety BBQ (sausages and bacon butties), and brownie the ever popular Mojo coffee cart.

The Gully Gutbuster is designed for the whole family and caters for all fitness levels. Participants will enjoy a 5 or 10 kilometre Fun Run/Walk through the beautiful Seton Nossiter Park, the surrounding streets of Newlands and Paparangi and finish back on the Paparangi School grounds in Beazley Ave, Paparangi.

Our 2017 event attracted 153 participants for the 5k run/walk with a top time of 25m 30s. A dedicated 26 runners conquered the 10k event with the winner clocking in at 48m 16s!

The seventh annual Gully Gutbuster fun run/walk will take place on Sunday 8 April 2017 from 9.00am – 1pm. Race day registration at 8am, warm up at 8.45am and then the 10k runners will head off at 9am with the 5k runners following 15 minutes later.

“A great run through one of Wellington’s best kept secrets. It’s a challenging course, but one you’ll want to do again and again. The school fair is great for the whole family and will kids entertained while mum or dad is running/walking. As far as school-run events go, this one is very professionally organised. Today was my second time and I will be back again next year.”
– Nathalie Schaffer-Leamy, 2014 competitor

Please note while the course is well marshalled and is mainly on either footpaths or well-formed tracks in the gully, there are a handful of road crossings on usually quiet streets. We, therefore, ask that if you are allowing your child to run/walk the Gully Gutbuster on their own that you are confident in their road safety skills and knowledge.
