Assemble at the SH1/Waiare Road junction south off Okaihau. The first 7km is a gradual climb with two distinct hills. The remaining 14km is mainly downhill.
A fast scenic course. The course narrows for the final 3km into Kerikeri Township, from the roundabout on SH10.
Upon reaching Kerikeri Township, participants will turn right into Hobson Avenue (at the roundabout) and left into Cobham Road to then enter Kerikeri Domain for the finish.
