MARATHON

42KM / 21.6 MILES

THE COURSE

The 42Km Marathon Challenge begins at North Hukatere beach and follows the ultramarathon route to Ahipara.  Our marathon challenge is the perfect opportunity for you to push yourself as fast as you can across a long distance while feeling the soft sand underfoot as you make your way to the finish line!

 

What makes this run unique is that you will be following in the footsteps of the Legend Te Houtaewa. As a participant, you will receive a kumara (sweet potato) at the starting line and you will be challenged with the task of returning the kumara back to Paripari Domain.
