The most recent edition of this event was on 8 April 2017.
The Human Event of the Karekare Beach Races will see runners and walkers travel 10km through stunning Waitakere Ranges bush, taking in magnificent views of the west coast and finishing on Karekare beach as the horses begin their events.
Shuttle buses will be running between the Human Event start, Piha Domain and Karekare throughout the day. It is advised that runners and supporters park in Piha and use the shuttle buses as required to get to the cars after the event (and after you have enjoyed the Beach Races Carnival).
There will be water and sports drink available at the finish line. As part of the carnival the Karekare Surf Club and Lone Kauri School will have a range of food and drinks for sale as part of their fundraising.
