Couch to 5km 

Spring is just around the corner and we're excited to bring you this opportunity to build up to a 5km run or walk. 

Proudly sponsored by Shoe Clinic New Plymouth, come along Sunday 8am at Bellringer Pavilion in Pukekura Park, to begin our training clinic for our Couch to 5km program. 

Click here to view our program - feel free to print a copy and pin up at home for extra motivation. 

You'll be supported by likeminded people to reach your goals. Shoe Clinic will share some tips and tricks along the way, with the many km's they have done on the road, trails and all places in between, they know what works!

Head into Shoe Clinic to get yourself some footwear, and we will see you out there. 

Fun run 2020


Wednesdays - 5:30pm at the Pukekura Park main gates
Sundays - 8:00am at the Bellringer Pavilion, Pukekura Park

We head out for approximately one hour - in separate running and walking groups. Pick a group that suits your pace and enjoy your outing!

After our Sunday outing we enjoy a social hot drink at the Tea Rooms.


It is with regret NPJW club has decided to cancel the 2021 event due to the unpredictable nature of the current Covid environment. We hope to bring the fun event to the community again but as to when, no one knows unfortunately. 

For those who have already entered, NPJW Club will be in touch with you directly via email. 

We'd still love to see you out running and walking - or coming along to our club meets on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome and no one is left behind.


Well done to all finishers in our Fun Run and Walk!

The Fun Run was a great success, with over 370 runners and walkers navigating the far reaches of Pukekura Park. The courses were 5Km or 10Km and all were finished within 2 hours which was faster than expected. 

Families of all ages took part and the smiles on the faces of participants made all the effort in planning and preparing the course worthwhile.  

With the help of volunteers and sponsors to put the event on, namely The Shoe ClinicMore FMPlymouth HotelECLHealth 2000 . 

We were proud to share $4000 of profit from the event to the nominated charities for this year’s event, The House of Karen and the Hospital Chaplaincy Service.

Meet at Pukekura Park

Wednesdays – 5:30 pm at the Pukekura Park main gates
Sundays – 8:00am at the Bellringer Pavilion, Pukekura Park

Got a question?

Send us a message if you have a question. We love to see new faces - and remember, no one is left behind. 

What we do and why

We’re a group of like minded people who get together twice a week to jog or walk around New Plymouth. We separate into joggers and walkers, and then by pace if needed. We all head off for about an hour on a mixture of footpaths, parks and trails, then finish back at Pukekura Park.

And better still - it's free. Get in touch to find out more.
