Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon and 10km

Sat, 10/03/2018 March 10th 2018 Finish on the golden sands ENTRIES NOW OPEN

The Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon and 10km has developed from the original Riwaka Half Marathon.

The course starts and finishes at the gorgeous Kaiteriteri Beach which is the perfect spot to stay for one or two nights - you can hire a tent site, hire a carvan or hire a cabin so that you can wander easily over to the start - perfect for a family weekend away. The kids will be kept entertained by the adventure playgrounds, mini golf and of course you can't forget sandcastle making on the beach! Or if they prefer, a dip in the stunning clear waters - if it's low tide they can even look through the rock pools.

The Half Marathon course is challenging - it has a couple of good climbs in there, but these can be forgiven when you consider you are running or walking in pure paradise.

Back in 1991 the birth of the Riwaka Half Marathon signalled ‘the ultimate test’ around a loop course through beautiful Kaiteriteri Beach.

Twenty years on nothing much has changed – the course is still tough, still challenging and still very scenic – perhaps the most picturesque in the country. One very notable change has occurred in that time and that is the relocation of the start and finish line, from Riwaka to the golden sands of Kaiteriteri Beach.

The event re-branded for it’s 20th anniversary in 2010 to Kaiteriteri Gold.

An honours board listing all half marathoners who have eclipsed 1 hour 20minutes (men), 1.32 (women) and 2.20 for the walk has been established.

EVENT INformation

Open to runners and walkers

The Course
Half Marathon: Starting on the renowned Kaiteriteri beachfront follow the undulating and picturesque coastline before climbing the Sandy Bay Hill. Following the steady descent to Sandy Bay there's more undulating coastline as you make your way back to finish on the golden sands of Kaiteriteri.

You will follow Kaiteriteri Rd through to Riwaka turnoff. Continue straight (towards Takaka) and turn right onto Sandy Bay/Marahau Rd (the start of the infamous hill!) and then a 'dogleg' towards Marahau after which it's a left turn toward Kaiteriteri, around the bays to finish at the beach.

This is a loop course.

Kaiteriteri Gold 10km: The 10km is an out and back course from Kaiteriteri Beach towards Marahau and return.
