The Honest 10 is a professionally and accurately measured 10km fun run event held once a month on a flat out-and-back course around the Wellington waterfront.

It starts by Freyberg pool carpark (allow plenty of time to get a park), and heads south towards the wind needle and back.

There’s also a 5km option that turns around earlier, with both options finishing back at the start.

Come along for an easy fun run or use it to test yourself over an accurately measured course – all welcome!
