For the first time in 2016, one of the biggest annual running events on the North Shore was electronically timed! The first Orewa Half Marathon for Running Events was a huge success with a massive, sold-out crowd of 1,800 participants. 2017 will introduce the Orewa Half Marathon as the stunning final race in the inaugural Garmin Auckland Half Marathon Series.
All events start and finish on one of the longest, widest, flattest running surfaces you will find anywhere … the hard packed sands of beautiful Orewa Beach. But this event is much more than a beach run with Eaves Bush Scenic Reserve providing rainforest while those in the half marathon will do a full circum-navigation of the stunning Te Ara Tahuna walkway around Orewa’s estuary.
