From Raglan take the State Highway (towards Hamilton) for 6kms and turn right on Kauroa-Kawhia Rd towards Te Mata.

Or from Hamilton 4km after Te Uku turn left on Kauroa-Kawhia Rd towards Te Mata.

 Just before you reach Te Mata village (after 7.5kms) turn right onto Ruapuke road. Then drive for another 7.3kms and turn right onto a gravel Rd (Karioi Rd). 300m and you’re there. A large parking area is available, adjacent to the race Start/ Finish.



Transport to the Start for the 10km Event: (10km event only)

To reach the start line, we provide a bus (booking required) starting from the finish line/ event village. (Swann’s farm – 65 Karioi Road)

The idea is that you leave your car on the finish line and jump in the bus to be dropped in Whale Bay.

The bus will leave at 8.50am from the corner of Karioi Road and Ruapuke Road. It takes around 35 min to get to Whale Bay.

Please note: Parking for the 10km start line is on Whaanga Rd and Calvert Rd (Whale Bay). Drop off for the 10km start line is on Whaanga Rd (entrance of Karioi Lodge). Then you walk to the start line.
