Starting from the Copthorne Hotel in Waitangi the 21 km course takes you along Paihia waterfront through Waitangi and the stunning Haruru Falls bush track. When you pass the Waitangi Golf course on Tau Henare Drive you are wowed by the magical views of the Bay of Islands.

With our new 12km course those who do not wish to tackle the half marathon will simply head through the Haruru Falls Track around the back roads and back to the Copthorne. Both courses involve a taste of everything including some short sharp hills but we think the most beautiful and scenic courses in New Zealand if not the world.

If you have done one of our events before you will know that we do not use a timing system this is to keep costs down for you. We do however take the podium finishers names and times and present them with medals at prize giving time.

The after party hosted by the Thirty30 bar in Paihia was a huge hit in 2014 so we have decided to make this an annual affair. Also popular was the discount vouchers supported by local business's that competitors received when they collected their bibs. We see this as a great way for visitors to experience the amazing cafes and restaurant that Paihia has to offer so will be doing these again hopefully next time with more vouchers added.

On the start line you will be treated to an unforgettable spine tingling performance by a local Maori Cultural Group.
