NB: The Tairua Trail and Tides is scheduled for the 6th of November. The committee wants to reassure participants and prospective competitors that the event is still being planned, but a full refund will be made available should the event be cancelled due to COVID lockdown levels.
This Annual event is about showcasing everything beautiful about the town of Tairua. The Half Marathon / 10km & 5km courses cover the picturesque landscapes of Tairua. This year they are raising money for Stage 4 of the Pauanui/Tairua Trail.
Tairua Trail & Tides includes 5km (Between the peaks) / 10km (Single Peak) & 21km (Twin Peaks) courses.
All distances have running & walking options. Prize giving will be at 12pm at the School/ Event base.
Tairua is 2 hours from Tauranga, Hamilton and Auckland and it is a great place to visit and spend the weekend. The event is a great way to soak up all that the town has to offer. There is something for everyone whether you come to compete seriously, have something to train for or to get a group together, dress up and have some fun.
This course is designed for everyone! You can walk, jog or sprint! It is flat the entire way so there really is no excuse not to enter at least this distance! Kids can be in prams or on a bike. We also encourage you to get a group together and dress up, there will be a prize for the best dressed team!
Like all courses you will leave from the start line at Tairua School. You will head down Petley Parade, past the wharf & Tairua fishing club; hug the coastline, turn right onto Pepe Bridge, past the Playground and along the estuary. You will turn right at the end of the reserve onto Manaia Road, it is here you will see the 2.5km mark / drink station where you will turn around and go back exactly the same way you came.
