The course is just short of 100km, made up of 14 legs ranging between approximately 5-10km and utilises the i-Ways, parks, walking tracks and incorporates as many hills as possible. This is to show off our beautiful landscape and views that Hawkes Bay has to offer, and to keep runners off roads where possible.
With an event that is 100km long it is important from a Health and Safety perspective that all participants are contained in a set area throughout the course. This ensures that Traffic Management is always where it needs to be and is protecting participants without being too stretched out. The cut off times and Holding Pens are explained below. Please remember that these times have been put in place for your safety and for overall course management. This is also why the rule of not being able to run more than one leg at a time has also been put into place.
