Waikouaiti Beach Run

Waikouaiti Beach Run:Walk 2018.mp4

Waikouaiti Beach Run/Walk Sunday 28th October 2018

This event is being organised by the Waikouaiti Friends Of The School (FOTS) community as a fundraiser for Waikouaiti School. There are prizes for all events.

Starting from the Waikouaiti Sports Park, the main (10km) course runs the full length of the beautiful Waikouaiti Beach from Matanaka to the edge of the Karitane estuary, then turning around to return to Waikouaiti Park.

Running by the tides, this is anticipated to be a hard-track course so we will expect fast times from keen and competitive runners. Fun for competitors and families alike with an additional 5km course and 2km kids run.

All courses have the run/walk option and are family friendly.


10km - $30

5km - $20

2km - $5

A $10 late entry fee applies on the day


Waikouaiti Park by the Eastern Rugby Football Clubrooms.
