As you are running across the peninsula the weather can be a mix of extremes at this time of year – from intense heat to freezing southerly. We recommend you consider carrying the following: Layered clothing, hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, hydration pack, survival blanket, energy bar. Please do not wear headphones as this limits your ability to hear directions from marshals and hazards.
The Prize giving ceremony will be held at the finish area at South Bay Racecourse. The amount of prizes per grade will be determined by the number of entries to the grade (if 3 entries or less there will be no prize). There will be one overall walker prize for the Half Marathon, 10km and 5km, there are no age categories for walkers.
At the start/finish line there will be a sausage sizzle, baked goods stall and a drinks tent. Part of your race pack gives you a drink and a sausage ticket, extra are available to purchase and all funds are for Kaikoura Lions and Kaikoura High School. Bring some coins!
