The Opotiki Half Marathon Dunes Dash and 10K is on Sunday June 17th 2012.
The course is along the brand new Mt Trails Dunes Track, hugging the beach towards the Mt Rd and back along the spectacular stretch of coast east of Opotiki with unspoiled views of the Pacific Ocean and the rugged East Cape.
Start in Memorial Park with a circuit around the stopbanks to then traverse the impressive Pakowhai Bridge. Great vistas along the track, undulating over the dunes. Short section over the beach at low tide and through a shallow stream at the Tirohanga Bluffs to rejoin the Motu Trails. 10km participants will turn around before the Tirohanga Bluffs.
This event starts and ends at Memorial Park, St John Street, Opotiki which is shown in the map below.
