From any of the downtown hotels, you can run to Mt. Eden, about 4k away. There is a nice circuit up and around the mountain which you can run repeats for as many times as you like. I did five before heading back to town, which made for about 12k from my hotel. The circuit road is all one way traffic, so quite safe, and the views are fantastic. Just keep an eye out for the cow pats! And the cows, for that matter... Run right to the top and around the flag pole and down again. The final downhill section past the restaurant is a great stretch for a bit of speed work. It was a really enjoyable run and with the hard hill, it can be as challenging as you like.
