COURSE UPDATE FOR Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon

Next weeks Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon has a course change due to Cyclone Gita and the destructive path it cut through Riwaka. Gone is the Sandy Bay Hill climb which will be welcomed by most, but has been one of the highlights of the event in the past 27 years.
The Sandy Bay Hill from Riwaka to Marahau is currently closed and will remain closed for the event weekend, so with this part of the Half Marathon course unavailable we have moved to an alternative Half Marathon course for the 10th of March.

Kaiteriteri Gold will go ahead on the 10th of March as planned with the only change to the day being the Half Marathon Course.

The NEW Half Marathon Course for the 10th of March.

Starting at Kaiteriteri Beach the Half Marathon will head to Bethany Motor Camp at the end of Martin Farm Road for a short loop. Participants will then come back through Kaiteriteri and head to Marahau on the Kaiteriteri - Sandy Bay Road.
Following the same course as the 10km you will then carry on to the intersection of Kaiteriteri-Sandy Bay Road and Sandy Bay-Marahau Road here you will turn RIGHT and head to Marahau beach. Staying on the beach path along the waterfront to the turnaround by the Abel Tasman National Park Car Park.
Here you will turnaround and return on the same path and course back to Kaiteriteri for the famous beach sand Finish!
