Running and Walking in Wellington, New Zealand

The Agency Group 10000m Festival

NZ’S biggest 10,000m running event

The Agency Group 10000m is the most popular 10000m race in New Zealand. For the last two years the Agency Group 10000m has been a night of PBs for runners of all speeds – 40 percent of runners finished with a new best time. We even had a world record! This year there will be running packs and pacers of many different speeds to drag you to your new PB. Races are open to men and women of all age grades.

The schedule will depend on the number of entrants we get but it likely to look a bit like this:

  • 4.45 pm – 10,000m B race, with a 50 min pacer, 45 min pacer and 40 min pacer.
  • 6.00 pm – 10,000m A race, with 37.30 min pacer, and 35 min pacer.
  • 7.00 pm – 10,000m The Agency Group race, with 32 min pacer and 30 min pacer.

Races are open to both men and women of all age grades. We expect the races to be mixed so please indicate which race you want to run based on your goal time/pace.

The final race of the night, The Agency Group 10000 metres is limited to a field of 30 athletes, including pacemakers. Selection of The Agency Group 10000 metres field will be based on goal times.

The number of remaining entries will determine field sizes for the A and B races. If numbers are manageable, only one A / B race will take place, at the start time of 6pm. If numbers exceed 100 entries we will look to add a C Race to the schedule if possible.
