Waikouaiti Beach Run

Waikouaiti Beach Run/Walk Sunday 5th November 2017

This inaugural event is being organised by the Waikouaiti Friends Of The School (FOTS) community as a fundraiser for Waikouaiti School.

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.

5km - $20

2km - $2 kids gold coin entry.
