Cargo Plus Coastal Challenge

Event Date - Saturday, 2nd March 2019

Run, walk, wade, and rock hop your way down Auckland’s extraordinary North Shore coastline – along several of our most beloved beaches. You WILL get wet! A one-of-a-kind event for a one-of-a-kind city.

With multiple course distances, there’s something for all ages, abilities, and levels of adventure. Bring the whole whanau and friends - there’s fun and festivities at the finish line!

The  Coastal Challenge offers participants a unique coastal adventure  featuring stretches of running or walking along white sand beaches  interspersed with patches of wading through clear, shallow waters and  scrambling or hopping over rocks throughout a coastline traverse  offering an offroad adventure second to none!

The courses take you through a series of obstacles, with each varying in difficulty:

    Treks along the southern coastline to the sand pit entrance
    Runs through Campbell’s Beach and past beautiful Jones Bay
    Over the peninsula, and into bush trails overlooking views of Kawau, Little Barrier, and the Omaha Bay
    And much more…

Whether you’re an international entrant or a local – you’ll see the Auckland coastline from a whole new perspective.

Afterwards, celebrate with fellow runners and walkers over an ice cold beverage and a swim!
