Honest 10 Info

The Honest 10

This month’s Honest 10 will go ahead on Sunday (17th October 2021) providing Wellington stays at Alert Level 2 or lower with a maximum of 100 participants on a ‘first signed up, first in’ basis .  We will let you know on our FB page if we reach 100 and need to close entries.
Please note the extra protocol requirements at the bottom of this post.
(2) Numbers will be restricted to 100 on a ‘first sign up, first in’ basis.
To this end, we encourage you to pre-register for this month’s race by emailing the following details to honest10@whac.org.nz🙂
– Name
– Age
– 5km or 10km
– M/F or other
– Phone number
– Prepay Y or N
Options for payment are to either pay cash on the day (as per usual) or prepay online.
If you select “Y” for Prepay when you register via email, you will be emailed back your ‘race number’. Please use internet banking to transfer your $10 entry fee (or $5 for 5k) to WHAC’s ASB account (12-3493-0058553-00), using H10 and your race number for the reference. Eg, if your race number is 15 put “H10 15” so we can tick you off as having paid.
You must provide your email or phone number on entry.
You must scan the QR code on the day.
Maintain social distancing and wear a mask at registration (there will a separate table for those who pre-register by email)
Bring your own water bottle as no drinks will be provided.  Bottles can be refilled at the Freyberg pool drink fountain.
Only come to the start line for the race briefing. We will endeavour to keep you in lines according to your pace using the seaward side of the footpath.. Please do not line up across the whole footpath.
In courtesy to other footpath users, we also strongly encourage using a buff or glove if you need to blow your nose clean mid-run. Paper towels can last a marathon without disintegrating so are a good option.
We’ll still be there to take your amazing finishing photos though!!!
Instead of bananas there will be muesli bars at the finish
If you’d like to start early (eg 8:15ish), just let us know when you register.
In un-WHAC style we ask that you don’t hang around afterwards as there will be lots of other Wellingtonians out enjoying the waterfront and we don’t want to congregate in a busy area at this time. Let’s save that for when we’re in Alert Level 1 🙂
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 17th!


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!

Registrations: From 8am

Start Time: 8:30am*

*Optional 8:15 start time if you think you would be over 65 minutes.

– February 13th
– March 20th
