Run New Zealand
On December 1st Run The World is
launching Run New Zealand. www.runnewzealand.co.nz. Run New Zealand
is a virtual running App designed to get the general public
more active and healthy through structured running and
walking. It is available to EVERYONE, you don’t have to be
the fastest or the fittest to be part of Run New Zealand.
Members log their run distance to our App, and we track them
– virtually – on a 4,710km journey around both the North
and South Island of NZ. Check
out our promo video here.
Run The World was
established in 2014 and has thousands of members already on
virtual journeys around Australia, the UK and Ireland, the
USA and Europe. Run NZ becomes our 5th map – opening up a
world of opportunities for people to stay motivated and
inspired to run; all the time learning about the country as
they go. You see every time a member reaches a town on their
virtual journey, we shoot them an email which tells them a
bit about the place.....so as well as being a health App, we
are educational and unique as well.
We want as many
locals to come and see first hand how we operate by
attending our launch – details are below.

Gordon Campbell: On The Eruption And Tourism Safety
Adventure tourism is a central theme in New Zealand tourism, and by definition, adventure always includes a certain level of risk. That said, New Zealand itself is also at risk of being seen as a tourism destination where commercial factors – rather than safety factors – are routinely allowed to determine the point where the boundary line of acceptable risk is being drawn.
