10km COURSE  Course Map

Aimed to complement the Kinloch Off-road Half, the 10km is the perfect event for supporters, runners and walkers.

Starting from the Kinloch Domain you will head left onto Mata Place, then right onto Marina Terrace.  Then left onto Kenrigg Road, a slight climb then turn right into Boojum Dell. A right turn into the gully and boardwalk, continue along the Esplanade, crossing the marina footbridge follow the path to Mata Place, along the cliff top reserve to the Whangamata Stream. Follow the stream to the Whangamata Road turnaround to return down the other side of the stream. Back at the start of the stream proceed right along the reserve to the Kawakawa Bay track. Turn around at the style, then head along the beach track to the finish line at the Kinloch Community Hall.

To minimise waste we are reducing cups at the drink stations and encourage you to bring your own bottle, cup or hydration pack. The stations are equipped for you to refill these. We will have reusable cups for sale at registration if you wish to purchase one ($5 cash).

Toilets are at the Marina and finish.


The course will have roving marshalls and first aid.  If you come across an injured person please check they are ok, send someone forward to the next marshal for help.  All marshals are in radio/phone contact with Event HQ. Unless the injury is serious anyone needing transport back to the finish will come back with tail end charlie. First Aid is also provided by PEAK Safety at the finish line.
