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.
See the About Us page for more details and our training times & days.

New Zealand XC Championships
Harcourt Park, Upper Hutt
The 2019 New Zealand XC Championships will be at Harcourt Park this year, right in our backyard. There will be both the normal NZ Championship races along with a free 4km Community Fun Run. Mark this in your calendars!
It'll be great to see as many Trentham members as possible participating. The Community Fun Run is a free 4km around the same course as everyone else will be racing on and open to everyone (recreational/social member, parents & non-members).
Also, come along to just watch the racing, it's a New Zealand Championship event which means the racing is often great with top runners from around the county competing.
Standard entries close 26 July. For members of Wellington Clubs that are in the Under 18 and above grades (U20, Seniors & Masters), we get a sweet deal with the entry fee being reduced from $47 to $20, check our newsletter for the code.
