Course Details


If you're looking for a 10km PB then look somewhere else. This race is epic and is like no other 10km event you'll find in New Zealand.

Starting at Pukeiti Gardens it's a 10km rollercoaster on the scenic drive of Carrington Road.

This is the type of run where it will be over before you know it as you are run up, down, around bends, over bridges and through the beautiful scenery of Taranaki.

If you have time take in some of the sights as you spot the coastline as you make your way back up to the gardens.

The destination of Pukeiti vows not to be outdone by the journey and it's worth getting your friends and family to meet you at the top where they can welcome you in then explore the gardens and trails.
