Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Methven running route, or want to share your favorite Methven running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Methven is on the flat Canterbury Plains one hour from Christchurch. It has the fabulous backdrop of Mt Hutt and the Southern Alps. A nice walk/run is along the Methven Walkway which skirts the RDR (Rangitata Diversion Race, a body of water). Starting from the township, the track goes through Pine trees by the racecourse then onto a track beside farm land and the water. Walking will take you about one hour but can be extended to around the outskirts of the Methven golf course or beyond.
