The Long Walk Home: Kapiti

Saturday, 10 November 2018 to Sunday, 11 November 2018

Wellington Railway Station to Raumati

Run/Walk Road/Path/Park Multi Day / Stage Race

The Lions Long Walk Home is being run over two days from Saturday, 10 November to Sunday, 11 November 2018 with 1 and 2 day options, going from Wellington Railway Station to Marine Gardens in Raumati.

In the event of a major disaster road and rail links out of Wellington City could be rendered impassable for many days, possibly longer. For many people, the only way home will be on foot. The Long Walk Home is an opportunity to raise awareness of the possibility and to practice the walk.

The project has the support of Lions Clubs along the route from Wellington to Paraparaumu, the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO), emergency services and Wellington City, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast District Councils.

Approx 50km over 2 days
