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!
