Classed as "Auckland's best off road adventure run", this event is for walkers and runners and as well as the half marathon also has a 15km option.

Based at the southern end of the Waitakere ranges at Whatipu. Lactic Turkey Events have had to change the course for the 7th Annual Wild Turkey Off-Road Half Marathon and 15km.

We have had to change the course significantly from that used for the past six years we have held this event. The Auckland Regional Council have approved the event to go ahead, but subject to us using an alternative course.

Unfortunately we are no longer allowed to use the beach or the Pararaha Stream section of the course. We're really gutted with this decision, especially given the work we've put in to try and retain the same course, including having to pay for photo monitoring on the course for three years and each year have received an "all good and no lasting impact on the environment noted" report.

However the show must go on! The Wild Turkey II has been created and just like Jaws, Rocky, Friday the 13th and Rambo . . . by no way is the second episode lamer than the first!

Check out the website for the map and photos of the new course and to enter. 170 have entered already since entries officially opened a couple of weeks ago. Entries are limited to 300.
