The Opotiki Dunes Dash & Half Marathon takes place along the stunning Mōtū Trails, which is part of the NZ Cycle Trail network. This fun ‘trail run’ type event includes a 5km, 10km and 21km track that start at Opotiki’s Memorial Park and traverses the impressive Pakowhai ki Otutaopuku Bridge and follows the Dunes Trail section of the Motu Trails Cycleway.
The event is also a fundraiser for the Opotiki Lions Club. All proceeds go towards the Opotiki Lions so they can continue to do great work in our community.
Admire the great vistas of the East Cape along the undulating Motu Dunes Track. This is a great course for both fun runners and more competitive athletes. This trail meanders along the spectacular stretch of coast east of Opotiki and forms part of the Motu Trails Cycleway. The track is a well compacted gravel cycle trail.
All runners and walkers are welcome to take part in the 21k, 10k and 5km walk and run categories.
