The metropolitan centre of New Zealand. Although this doesn't make it sound like a good place to run, if you get out of the central city, you will be pleasantly surprised. With Waitakere, Riverhead and Woodhill forests to the west and Hunua forest to the east any visitor to the city will have plenty of spots to get their trail fix.
