As a member of the Wellington Harriers Masters runners I took my turn to host a so called summer Saturday run here in Raumati South.
The last 3 years I have been blessed with beautiful sunny weather but sadly today was an exception. To be honest it wasn't that bad as it was warm rain, humid and no wind.
We met at Mc Kay's Crossing to begin our excursion in to Whareroa farm up to Campbell's Rd, into the Maungatukutuku Valley and back to our starting point.
There was a dedicated group of 12 who took on the rain. Most of the runners / walkers were from Wellington and from the response I got really enjoyed taking on the Kapiti hills and enjoyed our local scenery. For most of the group it was a totally new area for them.
The after match function was at our place where Jo had prepared burgers and salad. We had the barbecue going and there were liquid refreshments to replenish lost energy and calories!
Check out my post tomorrow for more photos as I can't get to grips with the new format I'm working with. Photos aren't going the places I want them to go and I'm giving up for today.
Hope you are not facing similar frustrations!
I look forward to taking them on another run in this beautiful area on a better day where they can appreciate where we have been and the surrounding beauty
