Welcome to Trentham United Harriers & Walkers

We are the largest group of runners and walkers in the Upper Hutt valley. Our Club is built around friendly local people who just enjoy running and walking at all ages and ability levels.
Our goal is to encourage people of all ages to get fit in an easy and fun way, and those that are fit to get faster.

For the Senior & older college runners.
Time: 8:00am
