What’s Great About This Event?
The marathon course will take you on a breath-taking, spectacular journey throughout Tauranga’s 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, where you will be awarded your finishers medal. It’s going to be epic!
Get your friends, family and work-mates together, we’ll see you on the start-line!

What people say about Total Sport events
Our first Coastal Challenge and our group loved it! Such a great day out and something for the whole team!
What an awesome event – thank you so much for putting on such a totally mad event with such an incredibly supportive atmosphere. I cannot remember how many times someone offered me a hand over a rock – and so of course in turn I did the same for those behind me.
“What a happy event! The atmosphere was exciting and so welcoming.”
