Welcome to the club site of New Plymouth Joggers & Walkers. Join us for free, and come along to our weekly social runs, walks and other events in New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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

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.
