Ally Swann is determined that health complications won’t keep her from completing her third consecutive The Press Run To Remember next month.

The 36-year-old first took part in the event in 2019 with her golden retriever Minnie, and improved on her time the following year despite enduring long-standing struggles with liver and bowel disease.

This year she comes prepared with a game plan and a goal – to once again beat her previous time in the 10-kilometre walk and run though the Port Hills on February 21, created to honour the lives lost in the Canterbury earthquakes.

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.
