Spend your weekend on the beach!

With race options from 2km to 21km and everything in between.

17th April 2016

If you have not yet been spoilt enough to participate in our event then you are seriously missing out. We boast one of the cheapest half marathons around with the most beautiful and scenic course designed to give you a bit of everything. Starting and finishing on Orewa Beach we send you through the pretty Eaves Bush track followed by a run through Kensingtion Park Villas down some local roads to Orewa’s new cycle/walkway and over to Silverdale and Millwater Estate. It really does have different surfaces and something new to look at the entire time.

Meet the New Management: Running Events

Running Events are New Zealand’s fastest growing event management company. We focus on 100% home-grown, in-house events that Kiwis love to do. We are driven by a desire to produce the finest quality events with a fantastic athlete experience at an affordable price.
Our secret is simple … we’re runners too. We know what makes a great race and what makes a fantastic experience.

It is extremely exciting to have the Orewa Beach Half Marathon join our other six running properties. Orewa is a stunning area and the Orewa Beach is a long time favourite for all those on the North Shore. With an race that’s already as strong as the Orewa Beach Half Marathon, we don’t want to change a proven formula, just bring a little Running Events twist to what is already a fantastic event. Keep your eyes peeled for developments and we’ll see you all in 2016!
