Our event is open to all ages and abilities, runners and walkers and Nordic walkers. We boast one of the cheapest events around and you certainly get a lot of bang for your buck with race pack goodies, loads of entertainment on and around the beach and an outstanding venue. This year we will be having a LIVE band on the beach from 11am -2pm so bring your togs towels and umbrellas and stay awhile.

We welcome Nordic walkers along in 2011 for the second year and our under 16 years competitors and school groups

Our new course in 2011 is an absolute cracker which sees competitors enjoying a scenic bush walk and passing through stunning Kensington Park before heading out and along Orewa's fab new cycle/walkway beside the estuary and across two new bridges. Of course to get you to these locations you will trek along Orewa beach twice. (Map and course directions on our website)

5km competitors will spend your efforts on the beach only heading north to the Copy Catz turnaround sign before heading home to the finish arch

Because we want to keep entry fees down our event is not timed. We ask that you either wear a watch or take your time off the 8 am start time.

2011 sees our schools competition where the school with the most children entered in the Copy Catz beach run/walk winning $1000 sports equipment voucher. Students only $5 entry fee.

Also gather 10 or more people together from your work gym club or other to enter in any distance and you will receive free entry and a free half marathon T (check out the website for further details).
