I just returned from Christchurch, and have to say I really enjoyed running along the river Avon. This river winds for some distance. You could start anywhere along it, with footpaths along both sides of it for long distances. Highlights include many runners (everyone seems to be running or cyling here), the beautiful river of course, many stately old trees, magnificent lawns and flowers, the city buildings and of course the many ducks. You could make this run as long as you like. Bubblers are available at points along the way, but the weather is so cool you probably won't require many liquids.
