The Bay of Islands Running Festival & Paihia Half Marathon is on Queen's Birthday Weekend with the running events on 2 to 3 June 2018.
This event will not be happening in 2019 but should return in 2020.
The Team at MaD Running have been hard at work to bring you the biggest and best event using the whole Queens Birthday weekend and there is something for everyone!
The Russell Fun Run on Saturday starts at the Russell School and sets off along the waterfront before heading over to one of Russell's secret beauty locations at Long Beach, before heading back to the school.
Sunday is the big day with the half marathon and fun runs. Changes this year have all events running through the Treaty Grounds thanks to the Waitangi Trust. This makes it one of New Zealand's most scenic and stunning courses.
