The 10km event is an excellent step up from the 5km and a great little challenge.
Starting from the Kinloch Domain you will head left onto Mata Place and follow the roads and through the Marine Terrace Recreation Reserve, then into Boojum Dell. A right turn into the gully and along the Boardwalk bring you to the lake front, where you will head along the lakefront to the Marina and over the bridge to head back past the Domain.
From there, you head along the cliff top reserve to the Whangamata Stream continue along the Esplanade, crossing the marina footbridge follow the path to Mata Place, along the cliff top reserve to the Whangamata Stream. Take a right and follow the stream up to Whangamata Road where you cross the stream and head back down to the lake front, taking in the varying scenery (don't forget to take a look at eh Water Wheel!)
Back at the lakefront, take a right towards Kawakawa Bay for a short out and back. Turn around at the style, then head along the beach track to the finish line at the Kinloch Domain.
