The Great Barrier Island Wharf to Wharf Marathon begins at Port FitzRoy wharf and finishes at Tryphena wharf. Walk, Run, Mountain Bike. Full Marathon or Half Marathon. Participants will experience rugged native bush, kauri, nikau, manuka, fern and some of the most unspoilt native forest left in New Zealand. Reaching the heights there are expansive views over white sandy beaches and across the ocean to an undisturbed horizon as well as green farmland, and picturesque settlements dotted around beautiful harbours.
The course follows the road overlooking Port FitzRoy harbour and down to the Kaiaraara Stream then continues up and down through rugged native bush, home to many of NZ’s native birdlife. The course reaches an elevation of 180 metres. Although arduous and challenging at times this event is a unique opportunity to enjoy some of the best scenery that Great Barrier Island has to offer.
