Join Run Canterbury for the pack runs every Tuesday and Thursday evenings through the semester 2 season in 2021. We will bring you a community based around running and getting better with every stride.

For Semester 2021, Run Canterbury will have its targets set on the Queenstown Marathon event on November 20th 2021.
