17th April 2016
Now introducing the Orewa Beach Half Marathon as the finale event of the Auckland Half Marathon Series! This is the perfect race to round out the summer with one of the most beautiful and scenic course designed to give you a bit of everything. Starting and finishing on Orewa Beach the course sends you through the pretty Eaves Bush track followed by a run through Kensington Park Villas down some local roads to Orewa’s new cycle/walkway and over to Silverdale and Millwater Estate. It really does have every different surface and something new to look at the entire time.

Let’s be honest, there’s nowhere better than the beach on a summer’s day. With gorgeous sand and surf to cool off in, Orewa Beach is the perfect place for a run.
