6km Run/Walk

Course Map and Profile

If your off-road running adventures have just begun or looking for a great morning out with the family, this is the event for you. The course is designed to be achievable yet still challenging and includes heaps of the West Coast's stunning beauty.

Starting on Bethells Beach and heading north around the coast to Oneill Bay. From here, you will have a solid climb up to Te Henga walkway. Once you reach the top, you are rewarded with breathtaking views at your turn around point. Once down from the Te Henga walkway, cross the foot bridge at the end and head towards the bridge that you came across when you came into Bethells. You will proceed along the path as if you were heading to Lake Wainamu but take a right onto the sand dunes. Track along the four wheel drive path underneath the trees and to the event base.

Total ascent over the 6km course - 212m (vertical metres climbed).
