If you are ever contemplating winning the Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon then best to first give Phil Costley a call to see if he will be on the start line.

Chances are likely that he will be though as he doesn't seem in threat of missing the Honours Board addition each year and the complimentary following year entry that goes with it.

News And updates

Saturday’s Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon & 10km courses are both challenging with a few hills to climb…..but that hasn’t stopped 250 competitors taking part in the annual event.

Both finish on the pristine golden sands and the recovery dip a mere metre or two away is always a more than welcome respite.

First away is the 125 strong half marathon field at 8.15am with their course around the Riwaka coastline before the steady ascent to the Sandy Bay Hill summit. Unfortunately Jim Fraser and his fellow pipers will be missing in action there this year but Nelson Events are searching for a suitable musical replacement to spur all on at the approximate halfway point.
