The Tauranga Marathon is a FAST, FLAT, FUN course that will take you on a breath-taking, spectacular journey throughout Tauranga best spaces and places. Starting and finishing at The Strand, next to the beautiful Tauranga waterfront, you will meander through the Daisy Hardwick boardwalk and estuary section, then make your way to Mount Maunganui, where you will head around the Mount loop track. From there you’ll roam along Marine Parade, where you’ll be right next to the ocean, before heading along Matapahi Rd, through some stunning rural vistas. You will then cross the Matapihi rail bridge and will finish slap bang in Tauranga’s best bar and restaurant area. It’s going to be epic!
