2017 Explore Paihia Half Marathon

Starting from the Copthorne Hotel in Waitangi the Explore Paihia Half Marathon course takes you along Paihia waterfront through Waitangi and the stunning Haruru Falls bush track to the waterfalls. 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 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 New 5km for 2017 is still waiting for course approvel from land owners and stake holders

On the start line you will be treated to an unforgettable spine tingling performance by a local Maori Cultural Group before sending the 5km groups off first. At the finish line everyone will be presented with a keepsake medal to congratulate you on your efforts.

Prize giving and the after party will be from 4pm at the Alongside Bar in Paihia where podium finishers will receive their medals and trophies with spot prizes and the major spot prize a $1000 travel voucher being drawn then too. (you have to be there to be eligible to win any prizes)
