Bay of Islands Run / Walk Festival

The Bay of Islands Run/Walk Festival is part of the Sport Northland Run/Walk Series.

This iconic event offers a choice of two run or walk distances, 6km & 8.7km. In 2022 there was also a Half Marathon distance which navigates the beautiful Haruru Falls Track, around the Waitangi MTB Park and through the famous Waitangi treaty Grounds.

All distances start and finish in the heart of the coastal town of Paihia. The scenic course encompasses some stunning views across the Bay as you navigate your way along the waterfront, including access to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds.

This even was previously known as the Jennian Homes Mothers Day Fun Run/Walk (and held on Mother’s Day).
