The Kaikōura Whale Run on Saturday, 7 September 2019 is an annual run/walk half marathon, 10km fun run and walk and kids 2km race.
Now into its 13th year, the Kaikōura Whale Run began life in the school grounds of Kaikōura Suburban School as the Kaikōura Suburban Half Marathon. The idea was to create a fun event fundraiser that could encourage folk to have a get fit project over winter to feel great for the summer.
Each race follows a loop course which starts and ends at Kaikōura Suburban School. They follow the Kowhai River bank, along the base of Mt Fyffe and finishing with picturesque scenes of Kaikōura.
