The Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon and 10km on Saturday, 9 March 2019 start and finish at Kaiteriteri Beach.
The Half Marathon course is challenging - it has a couple of good climbs in there, but these can be forgiven when you consider you are running or walking in pure paradise.
Back in 1991, the birth of the Riwaka Half Marathon signalled "the ultimate test" around a loop course through beautiful Kaiteriteri Beach.
Nothing much has changed since then - the course is still tough, still challenging and still very scenic. One notable change occurred in that time, which was the relocation of the start and finish line, from Riwaka to the golden sands of Kaiteriteri Beach. The event was renamed Kaiteriteri Gold in 2010.
