The Gutbuster is organised by the Combined Rotary Clubs of Wellington, in conjunction with Wellington Harriers, to help raise funds for the Combined Rotary Centennial Project – the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary Discovery Area. The event is also supported by Wellington City Council and Karori Wildlife Sanctuary.
