In the Footsteps of the Marines
A charity run and walk at Whareroa Farm in Paekakariki
This event commemorates the American Marines based in the Paekakariki area in 1942 and 1943. Run or walk in the hills where they trained.
The 12.2 km Runners/Race Walkers course and 10.3km Slow Joggers and Walkers course includes unsealed roads, bush and clay tracks, and offers spectacular views. The route climbs over 300m, so a good standard of fitness is required. The race is restricted to people 12 years and over unless accompanied by an adult.
