Le jolie Jog is a trail run and walk at Akaroa to raise funds for the new Akaroa Health Hub. There are three options featuring stunning scenery: 10km, 6km and 4km.
The race is held almost exclusively on private land, thanks to Steve and Pam Helps and Carl and Tori Uren in offering part of their farms for the event. It has spectacular views, interspersed with native bush and some hill sections, following marked tracks with good footing overall. The downhill section to the top of Aylmers Valley Road has some steep sections with uneven footing where extra care will be needed.
