Kaikōura Whale Run – The fun event for everyone
Enjoy the spectacular views of the Seaward Kaikōura Ranges. The mountains are almost close enough to touch, the air is fresh and pure. We have a comprehensive traffic management plan, although sometimes we wonder what traffic we’re managing on these quiet country roads. 10km & 21km distances are marked on the courses. We have portaloo’s and drink stations on the courses for your convenience and when you’re done there’s refreshments and a bit later whale-says-suss-the-course1a nice relaxing prize giving. First drink station is at 6km due to the access to the river bank. Prizes are awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd man/women – non vet and vet (40+) and school age (10-18 years) in the half marathon and 10km events. 1st boy and girl in the Marafun event receive a mannequin for keepsake. Spot prizes follow
•1/2 Marathon Run
•1/2 Marathon Walk
•10 km Run
•10 km Walk
•2 km Marafun (for school age children 9 years and under)
These ARE NOT hybrid events. A walk is a walk and a run is a run.
