Come and celebrate the 21st anniversary of the GJ Gardner Whangamata Run Walk Festival on Saturday 10th of September 2016!

With the half marathon (21km), the 10km and 5km events, the Whangamata Run Walk Festival offers something for participants of all ages and abilities. All three courses take in spectacular views of ocean beach & pristine bush-clad hills along the way. Enter individually, with friends and family, or gather a team together.

The Whangamata Lions are now the organisers  of this Festival.

The pride of the Coromandel, Whangamata, boasts a wide range of recreational choices including:  surfing, fishing, kayaking, tramping, mountain biking, birdwatching as well as plenty of shopping, arts and crafts, plus great cafes, restaurants and bars!

Although the emphasis is always on safety, fun and support our key sponsors, the major beneficiaries from the 2015 event included the St John Ambulance, Whangamata Area School and Whangamata Lions.

We look forward to seeing you on September 10th for this family fun run event; an occasion that always provides a challenge and entertainment for both serious and recreational runners and walkers. Get registered now!

If you have entered the Whangamata Run Walk Festival in previous years and have any suggestions for 2016 to help to make it extra special, please email us to share your ideas!

With special thanks to our sponsors
