IMPORTANT!! – The 2020 EVENT IS CANCELLED
Unfortunately the Massey Athletic Club were left with no choice but to cancel the 2020 event, after the increased costs and additional restrictions required due to COVID-19, make the event not viable. The Club’s does not want to risk any of the participants or volunteers.
The club and organisers would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who had already entered and supported us and we hope that we’ll see you in April 2021.
The course is clearly marked and marshalled and takes you through rural Whenuapai’s gently undulating country roads, across the causeway, and around picturesque Herald Island (Half Marathon ONLY) as well as circumnavigating the Whenuapai RNZAF base; finishing in front of the Whenuapai School Hall.
