We are a friendly group of runners and walkers who venture out on the last Sunday of each month to various spots around the South Wairarapa area – Featherston, Greytown, Martinborough, and surrounds. We sometimes go further afield as well.
We start together and finish together, going at speeds that allow chatting, and we always end the run with a stop at a cafe.
For more information, contact us.

Hi all. The Feb run (Sun Feb 24th) was planned for running the hills and bush at my farm down Western Lake Road with a bit of a bbq afterwards. However Judy and Bruce cant make that date but are both to keen to run there. So I reckon we have a couple of options: move the Feb run to 17th Feb or move the run at my place to 24th March and pick another location for the Feb run. (Phil had an idea about where we could go). So, what say the team? I'm flexible and have booked out all the dates at the farm so no-one else can book it while we decide. And if you want to see what could be in store, check out our facebook page 'western lake woolshed'. 7 - 9kms hills / bush run. Fun! 😀 (www.westernlakewoolshed.co.nz) ... See MoreSee Less

A total of 42 runners and walkers took part in the first Greytown Woodside Trail parkrun on 3 November 2018. It was cool and calm conditions (after the rain had stopped a quarter-hour before the start!).
Then, it was time to run.
On hand to start everyone off was South Wairarapa's mayor, Viv Napier, who had a warm welcome for all of the locals and for all of the parkrun tourists from Lower Hutt and Napier.
First across the line was Joshua Jordan, representing Trentham United Harriers. Young Joshua now owns the Greytown Woodside Trail course record of 18.35. Andrea Cowlam was the first female finisher, in a time of 23.49. Andrea was one of 13 people who did their first ever parkruns on the day. Please come back for more!
The Greytown Woodside Trail is quite a popular resource for the residents of Greytown and the wider Wairarapa. The 4.6k trail extends from Greytown to Woodside Station, tracing the route of the former rail line that once connected the two. The trail is popular with runners, walkers, cyclists, dog walkers, and many more. Thanks to the Greytown Trails Trust for permission to use the trail for parkrun! For more info, visit their website at www.greytownrailtrail.org.nz.
A big thanks to the Lower Hutt contingent (organised, loosely or otherwise by parkrun stalwart Bruce McCardle), who represented in style. We hope to see you back over the hill soon!
Thanks as well to this week's volunteers: Di Bailey (below), Phil Cox, Paul Gibbons, Rachel Marsh, Nneka Okonta, and Ted Ward.
Cheers, and see you next week!
