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.

Our after party is always a huge hit as are the discount vouchers supported by local business's that competitors receive when they collect their bibs and timing chips. 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.
